Abstract
"The Magnifica Communità di Fiemme, located in the Italian Alps, is a forest-dependent community that has managed forest heritage as a common property resource for nearly 1000 years. Community forestry has a long tradition in Italy, going back to the beginning of this millennium. Although social and economic evolution and progress have resulted in modifications in traditional collective land ownership and management, several examples of such cooperation are still present and active, especially in the central Italian Alps. The Magnifica Communità di Fiemme is an example of effective and modern management of common land for the benefit of a forest-dependent community."
