Abstract


In the Catena Costiera (Coastal Chain) and the Sila Piccola (northern sector of the Calabrian Peloritan Arc), Southern Italy, remnants of continental and oceanic lithosphere still preserve the records of a geodynamic history developed throughout the Mesozoic rifting and Jurassic oceanic opening stages followed by the Cretaceous-Tertiary convergence phase, mainly consisting of subduction- and continental collision- related events. The main aims of the present Guide- Book is to illustrate the main features of the oceanic and continental rocks involved in the related magmatic and tectonometamorphic processes.
