We present photometric observations of three asteroids: 73 Klytia, 377 Campania, and 378 Holmia, together with their spin and shape models. The models were constructed with the lightcurve inversion method, using all available lightcurves of these objects. In the case of Campania, the long persisting doubts about its rotational period have been resolved. Various authors state periods between 8.48 and 16 h, while the period we determined is 11.664401±pm 0.000010 h.
