7501 Farra           Discovered 1996 Nov. 9 at Farra d´Isonzo.
Named for the small town in northeastern Italy that is the site of the observatory where this minor planet was discovered. A Roman village built in defense of the strategic bridge over the river Isonzo, it later became a Lombard stronghold. Located in the lowlands of Isonzo, Farra is well known for the excellent quality of its wines.
