Abstract

This Geological Field Trip has been conceived on the occasion of the 86th National Congress of the Italian Geological Society (Arcavacata di Rende - CS, September 18th-20th, 2012). The tour provides to most update knowledge on structure, composition and evolution of crystalline basements and Mesozoic-Paleogene sedimentary covers of the Southern sector of the Calabria-Peloritani Chain, discussed and illustrated by the recent CARG Project relating to the Sheet 587 Milazzo - 600 Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto (2011) of the Geological Map of Italy, and corresponding Illustrative Notes. The results of this investigation integrate and detail the specific geological aspects already described in the Sheet 601 Messina–Reggio di Calabria (2008) by the same authors, with an innovative multi-disciplinary approach. The significant geo-diversity of the area of this Field Trip is a result of a long and complex geological history, from the Paleo-Proterozoic to the Paleogene, responsible for a rich geological and morphological heritage and related historical/cultural uniqueness and peculiarity. The geotour is concentrated in the Central-North and Central Peloritani Chain. It lasts three days and develops along three different itineraries, described and illustrated by this Field Trip Guidebook.
