Learning Objectives

The purpose of course is to provide essential information about the geological and stratigraphic- structural units of area that part of African margin (Adria or Apula plate) and today form the Italian peninsula (Alps, Apennines). At the end of the course the student should be able to analyze in a synthetic paleogeographic description the geodynamic evolution of the Italian region.
