We report the spectroscopic classifications of SN2019lrb (ASASSN-19sb) as type Ic at maximum, SN2019llt (ASASSN-19rv) as type Ia pre-maximum, and SN2019lrc (ZTF19abhxllw) as type Ia about 1 week before maximum.

The Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, AN, 335, 841), in the framework of the ASYAGO School Program (Asiago School for Young Astronomers with Galileo Observations, attending students: Francesco Antonuccio, Giovanni Benetti, Alberto Fantini, Emily Pertile, Anna Rigoni; tutors: Alessandro Siviero, Costantino Sigismondi), reports the following supernova classifications.

The targets were supplied by the All Sky Automated Survey for SuperNovae (ASAS-SN, Shappee et al. 2014) and by the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF, see Atel #11266).

The observations were performed with the Asiago 1.82m Copernico Telescope (+AFOSC; range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.4 nm).

The classifications were performed using the GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A&A, 488, 383) and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, ApJ, 666, 1024) tools. The Asiago classification spectra are posted at the website

However, the spectrum is also consistent with those of SNe Ia at maximum. The spectral continuum is very red allowing for a high host galaxy reddening which is also confirmed by an intense (EW~0.23nm) NaID absorption. The redshift has been derived from the narrow host galaxy lines. The expansion velocity deduced from the Si II 635.5 nm is about 10500 km/s13:07:02.910+13:04:28.13SN Ic0.027439
