9010 Candelo

This minor planet is named after the municipality of Candelo in the Province of Biella in Italy. It's known for a part of town called the Ricetto, a fortified village containing restorations of 200 small medieval houses.

The symbol for this asteroid is based on its coat of arms: a grouping of four candles, connected at the base, with the left and right candles standing three-fourths as tall as the center two. There is a Vestan plume of smoke above, representing the candles as being lit.
