    Hi, carla guaraldi.

    When you want to say that someone owns something you use
    ' the ownership of ' it should be follwed by a noun or sometimes a noun phrase.

    e.g: Alex has a red car. you can say:

    Alex is the owner of the red car. means this car belongs to Alex.

    It depends on what you're going to say.

    GOOD LUCK!
