Abstract

Recent development in mapping of Italian volcanic areas, both ancient and active, within the framework of the CARG Project (Italian Geological Map 1:50000 scale) has allowed to define a stratigraphic approach that allows to correctly show the basic lithostratigraphy and the main internal organization of the volcanic succession including the essential periods of quiescence. Such innovative approach proves to be very effective for hazard studies, land-planning, management of the geo-cultural heritage.Volcano stratigraphy
