Italian Meteorites

Institute of Mineralogy, University of Perugia, Italy

Summary: In an attempt to assemble together the sparse information regarding the eighty meteorites recorded as having fallen in Italy, tables have been prepared dealing respectively with chronology, name and generalities, synonymy, and literature, together with a distribution map. They are intended not only to help correct identification of pieces widespread in museums or private collections, but also to begin a labelling unification process, in order to avoid confusion arising from a wide variety of synonyms.
