Gorizia

1995 WT5 . Discovered 1995 Nov. 23 at the Farra d'Isonzo Observatory at Farra d'Isonzo.

Named for the Italian town on the 1000th anniversary of the first mention of its actual name in an official document. Gorizia is the main city in the lowlands of the river Isonzo, on which Farra d'Isonzo {see planet (7501)} and its astronomical observatory rise. Under Hapsburg dominion for over four centuries, Gorizio is now a green city where buildings and streets continuously remind one of this Austro-Hungarian influence. (M 33789)
