16106 Carmagnola           Discovered 1999 Nov. 12 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Near Turin and the Roero region, Carmagnola is a historic and cultural town in Piedmont. Its world-renowned gastronomy derives from excellent local agricultural products. The name was suggested by E. Bowell, A. W. Harris and V. Zappalá.
