proprietà del clan
Explanation:
Secondo me si tratta della cosiddetta "proprietà del clan.
Vedi questa spiegazione a proposito dell'Irlanda:
"The Brehon-law Land Tenure
Most land was held by kinship groups, called Fine (pronounce "Finna"). Nineteenth century translations rendered "Fine" as "Tribe", and this led to the incorrect interpretation that the land was held in commonage by the population of the Tuath. The Fine was, in fact, a group of descendants of a common ancestor. The head of the kin, known as the Ágae Fine (pronounce "Eye Finna") or Cenn Fine was chosen on the basis of his superior wealth, rank and good sense. Each member of the kin held an individual division of the land, but on his death, his division returned to the kinship group. An owner of such land could not dispose of it without the consent of all the members of the Fine. A successful farmer, however, could accumulate wealth with which to buy land in his own right, and a proportion of such land was held independently of the Fine."
