This presentation was delivered at the Law Seminars organised by the Carlo Alberto Collegio and the University of Turin. It explores the origins of absolute propietary regimes over natural resources, the primacy of property rights over other fundamental rights to humans (food, water, land, health, housing) and the normative social construct of food as a private good and a commodity. This social construct, so prevelent right now in the global food system, can be changed if we so considered. The alternative narrative of food as a commons, based on multiple dimensions of food, is presented and practical implications are suggested. Finally, some examples of existing food commons are presented.
