Abstract

The Neogene-Quaternary, Apenninic deformation severely affected the central-southern side of the Po Plain subsurface and western side of the northern Adriatic Sea, and is known to have generated four asymmetric structural arcs, hundreds of Km long, running from W to E, namely : Turin Hill-Monferrato-Langhe-Maritime Alps (arc 1), Emilia Romagna-Marche (arc 2), Ferrara (arc 3) and Adriatic sea (arc 4). The arcs are the results of a westward movement of autochthonous crustal blocks pushed from ESE-SE in the first phase and from SE-SSE in the second phase, the main tectonic transport being to the NW. - (NF)
