36446 Cinodapistoia is an asteroid, originally designated 2000 QV, discovered on August 22, 2000, by Luciano Tesi and Andrea Boattini at San Marcello Pistoiese. Its diameter is uncertain: a range of 3 to 6 km is probable.

It is named in honour of Cino da Pistoia (1270 1337), whose full name was Guittoncino dei Sinibaldi, or Sighibuldi, a Tuscan jurist and poet.
