The Regole of Spinale and Manez, for the history and the extension of the wood and alpine heritage, are among the most well-known Collective Properties.


Since 1249 the collective spirit and the beauty of the woodland and alpine heritage coexist. Nature and the principles on which collective ownership is based guarantee the values ​​of inalienability, indivisibility and conservation of the primitive asset. This makes the Rules an institution for the protection of the territory. The strength and seriousness of the original principle has been preserved over time, maintaining faith in values ​​and behaviors that respect the earth and our mountains.
The Regole of Spinale and Manez, due to the quantity of historical and juridical documents saved up to our time, due to the richness and extent of the forest and alpine heritage, due to the active presence at institutional level, are the most important Collective Properties of the Giudicarie and among the most famous in Trentino.


The Regola of Spinale (3,970 hectares in the area of ​​Madonna di Campiglio) includes Val Brenta, Vallesinella, Mount Spinale, Grostè and part of the Brenta Group (World Heritage since 2009). The Regola of Manez (680 hectares) is located between the Val d’Algone and the Val Rendena. The total area is 4,650 hectares, 2,035 of which are wooded. The area included in the Adamello Brenta Nature Park is 3,611 hectares.
The cadastral municipalities of competence are respectively Ragoli 2nd part and Montagne.
In Ragoli, part 1 is the administrative headquarters.


The Comunità delle Regole is a collective property of the inhabitants (descendants of the ancient original families or after 30 years of residence for the immigrants) of the municipality of Tre Ville (former Ragoli, Preore and Montagne) which in the past constituted the ancient Community of Preore with his neighbors. The origins are pre-Roman, for some even Rhaethian  for the use of the undivided property.
In fact, the introduction of the “divided” and the “undivided” in founding a village was typical of the Rhaethians. While the “divided” was the land in the vicinity of the village assigned to each family, the “undivided” was owned by the whole community. It was often worked in common by all the villagers, who enjoyed and shared the products (hay, wood, game, fishing, etc …)
This principle has remained unchanged in the Comunità delle Regole.
