A study of a natural system concerning the growth of minerals (garnet) into metapelite host rocks from Calabria (southern Italy), which underwent pressure up to 1.2 GPa, is presented. Through the application of a thermodynamic model it was possible to determine P and T conditions achieved during metamorphic evolution of these rocks useful to reconstruct the related tectonic settings of poly-orogenic metamorphic complexes.
