usually 'yes', but there are some complications;

1) IIRC not all campag mechs use the same cable pull and

2) not all shimano 9s STIs support the same number of trim clicks.

You may need to alter the cable mount on the mech slightly if you need the trim clicks to work properly. Campag make a little adaptor washer that sometimes does the trick.

However if you don't need the trim clicks the STI will define the big ring setting and the stop screws in the mech will define the small chainring setting, and a small difference in cable pull won't matter too much.
