The Le Regole d'Ampezzo, the collective properties of Cortina d'Ampezzo, manage the natural heritage of forests and pasturelands and perform a number of cultural activities focussing on promoting and preserving the historical and artistic heritage of the Ampezzo community.

The Regole of Ampezzo administer three Museums: the Rinaldo Zardini Palaeontology Museum, exhibiting the Dolomite fossils, the Mario Rimoldi Modern Art Museum hosting one of the most important art collections of the Italian Twentieth century, and the Regole of Ampezzo Ethnographic Museum that shows the silvan and pastoral traditions of the Regole community through objects and images.
