The arms of Scandiano shows a stairs, with the Latin motto "Proxima coelo, nunquam infidelis" that means: "I am near the sky, and never unfaithful". It seems that the name Scandiano derives from the ancient habit of the inhabitants of the town to climb (scandere in Latin) a hill with a temple of the Latin god Iano. Hence the stairs are considered a canting element.
