Cessato Cadastre


Before the Unification of Italy, in 1861, there were as many as 22 different cadastres with very considerable differences, both in terms of census dates as well as quality of results and type of system adopted; some dated back as far as the sixteenth century, others, such as those of the Lombardo-Veneto and Tuscany, on the other hand, dated back to the years immediately preceding the Unification. Some were geometric while others more descriptive, some were by masses of property or crops while others were of the parcel type, etc.


The New Cadastre (now called Cessato Cadastre) was established with Law No. 3682 of 1 March 1886, the first and fundamental law of the Italian cadastre.


The maps are organised in modular sheets; cultivated land, marked by the parcel number, has no colouration or graphic symbols.
The maps and parcels are indicated by a sequential numbering system that refers to a separately compiled register.
The maps available at TeDOC cover the period 1886-1904.


It surveys the entire country homogeneously.
It is a very rigorous geometric-parcel cadastre based on estimates and measurements by means of a system of classes and tariffs.
The topographical survey of the territorial unit, the parcel, distinguishes: ownership and/or possession; crop quality and class; intended use and income capacity.
