Natural and Cultural heritage of the Dolomites

The Dolomites offer not only fantastic opportunities for sport and well-being, but also contain many occasions to meet with traces of history and culture.
A nice example of this union are the Regole d'Ampezzo, the collective properties of Cortina d'Ampezzo, in addition to secular management of the natural heritage of forests and pastures, I carry out a cultural activity aimed at the enhancement and protection of historical and artistic heritage the Ampezzo community.
What are Le Regole?
In many places in Europe survive the collective properties. Vicinie, rules, partecipanze, cliques are some of the names that distinguish them. In Cortina are the Regole D'Ampezzo: the forests and pastures have for centuries collective ownership of the original community.
This was for centuries the essential source of livelihood for the population Ampezzo, regulation, moreover, the relationship between man and the environment, allowed the sustainable use of the natural territory of the valley.
This sort of ancient origin, establishes collective rights to enjoy and manage the land. The land can not be sold, or be subject to changes in their destination: a natural, cultural and economic assets in joint ownership, to be transmitted to the children where conservative and productive use coincide.
Initially, the Regole were two, Ambrizola - Falzarego and Larieto, then grew today are eleven and, for about twenty years, are united in commonality .
The Regolieri are the heads of families descended from the ancient Ampezzo stock, who administer the acquis communautaire according to Laudi, the ancient laws approved by the assembly made ​​up of the heads of families.
The Rules are run today around 16,000 hectares of forest, with cutting and sale of timber and natural forestry forestry development. Some pastures are still used for grazing cattle, maintaining the ancient primary activity that, in recent decades, has seen a considerable drop.
Among the aims of the rules are the preservation and promotion of the language, culture and traditions of the Ampezzo. Since 1990, the Rules also run the Natural Park of the Ampezzo Dolomites.
There are three museums of the Regole: the Museum of Paleontology Rinaldo Zardini, dedicated to fossils of the Dolomites; the Museum of Modern Art Mario Rimoldi with one of the most important collections of Italian twentieth century and the Ethnographic Museum Regole d'Ampezzo, illustrating through objects and images the forestry-pastoral tradition of the Regole community.
