9121 Stefanovalentini           Discovered 1998 Feb. 24 by V. S. Casulli at the Colleverde di Guidonia.
Stefano Valentini (b. 1955) is an Italian amateur astronomer and able computer programmer well known for his software WinAstrometry, used at many Italian amateur observatories for the calculation of astrometric positions from CCD images. Since 1993 he has collaborated with the observatory where this discovery was made.
