Comunanza is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Ascoli Piceno in the Italian region Marche, located about 70 kilometres (43 mi) south of Ancona and about 20 kilometres (12 mi) northwest of Ascoli Piceno. It is a typical medieval village along the Aso river, founded in the 5th or 6th century by families of Ascoli to escape barbaric incursions.

Comunanza borders the following municipalities: Amandola, Force, Montefalcone Appennino, Montefortino, Montegallo, Montemonaco, Palmiano, Roccafluvione. Sights include the late-Romanesque church of Sant'Anna, and that of Santa Maria a Terme, built in the 9th century in sandstone above a Roman temple which belonged to the disappeared Roman settlement of Interamnia Poletina Piceni.
