Name(s) in local language(s):Lazio, Italia


Plio-Quaternary volcanism of both the acidic type (Tuscan Magmatic Province: Cimini Mts., Tolfa-Manziana-Cerite range) and the alkaline-potassic type (Roman Magmatic Province: Vulsini Mts., Vico volcano, Sabatini Mts, and Alban Hills) covered the greater part of the Tyrrhenian Latium; the latter generated the volcano-tectonic or explosive morphological depressions of the lakes Bolsena, Vico, Bracciano, Albano, and Nemi. Three sedimentary sequences outcrop inside the volcanic cover area and at its borders and characterize the substratum:
- post-orogenic complex (Neogene - Quaternary), made of clays, sands and, secondarily, conglomerates at the base of the volcanites;
- flyschioid complexes in the Ligurian facies, made of arenaceous, argillaceous or marly-calcareous formations (Cretaceous - Oligocene);
- complexes of the Tuscan or Umbria-Marche Series, made of carbonate, with an anhydride-dolomitic formation and successive prevalent carbonate formations (Upper Trias - Eocene).
The underlying regional metamorphic basement of the Palaeozoic age (phyllites and quartzites) outcrops only to the west of the Vulsini Mts.
