We report the spectroscopic confirmation of three supernovae obtained with the 1.82-m Copernico Telescope in Asiago (+ AFOSC; range 340-820 nm; resolution 1.3 nm) under the Asiago Transient Classification Program (Tomasella et al. 2014, posted at http://arxiv.org/abs/1403.7233 )
A spectrogram of CSS140603:160725+364736 obtained on June 08.90 UT shows that this is a type Ia supernova.
A good match is found with several type Ia SNe at redshift about 0.07 and near maximum light.
An expansion velocity of 9800 km/s is derived from the minimum of the Si II 635-nm line
A spectrogram of CSS140605:153631+465414 obtained on June 08.95 UT shows that this is a normal type Ia supernova. A good match is found with several SNe Ia about 1 week after B-band maximum light. An expansion velocity of 9600 km/s is derived from the minimum of the Si II 635-nm line.
A spectrogram of PSN J21151330+0211224 obtained on June 09.01 UT shows that this is a type-Ia SN. Adopting for the host galaxy (IC 1370) a redshift z = 0.050 (Huchra et al. 1999, ApJS 121, 28, via NED), a good match is found with several normal type-Ia SNe few days before B-band maximum light. An expansion velocity of about 11900 km/s is derived from the minimum of the Si II 635-nm line.

Classification were made via GELATO (Harutyunyan et al. 2008, A.Ap. 488, 383) and SNID (Blondin and Tonry 2007, Ap.J. 666, 1024).
