THE ITALIAN ASTROMETRY GROUP
Gruppo Italiano Astrometristi
The Gruppo Italiano Astrometristi (G.I.A.) (Italian Astrometry Group) coordinates all the astrometric activity done
in Italy by amateur astronomers.
By admission of the late Brian G. Marsden, former director of Minor Planet Center, in the '90s the Italian working group was as active as the well known Japanese group in terms of discoveries and measures sent to his office.
The G.I.A. members had a meeting a year (now suspended); they are connected
via a mailing list.
The G.I.A. group during the meeting of April 22th, 1995 held in Farra d'Isonzo (GO): ninth from left in stand up row
(with a blue shirt) is Gareth V. Williams, working at the Minor Planet Center, Cambridge, MA.
