One of the most ancient forms of self-government of environmental systems is that relating to the management of civic uses and collective lands, in which a specific local community controls and manages sustainable resources (fields, pastures, woods, etc.) sustainably and efficiently. The paper aims to briefly retrace the salient stages of the history of collective domains, and to explore their value as "goods that are produced by long co-evolutionary processes between human settlement and environment" (Magnaghi 2016, 139) highlighting the appearance of complex socio-ecological systems (SES). Finally, using the SES framework, developed by Elinor Ostrom to analyze the sustainability of socio-ecological systems (Ostrom 2009), on the role of collective domains as an ecosystem management tool and as a device for local development. Through the empirical analysis of a case study located in Central Apennine in Umbria, we want to highlight elements of continuity and discontinuity of the system as the socio-economic conditions change.
