Illustrative Notes of the Geomorphological Map of Po Plain


Forme di origine tettonica – Tectonic landforms

Pages 55-68


In the Geomorphological Map, landforms of tectonic and neotectonic origin cover an important geodynamic aspect which had already been studied throughout Italy since the late 1970s and which has occupied many researchworkers, many ofwhom then directly involved in preparing the Map itself Their commitment resulted in several general works dealing with neotectonic aspects in Italy, including reports by Enel (1981), the Neotectonic Map of Italy (prepared within the framework of the Progetto Finalizzato Geodinamica: Sottoprogetto Neotettonica of C.N.R., 1983) and the Structural Map of Italy (C.N.R., 1991). Many data regardingtectonic forms in the Po Plain are thus taken from these studies and from other, later ones, equally important and carried out on a regional scale. Most of the tectonic landforms in the Po Plain are in fact to be found along its borders, particularly in the contacts between plain and marginal reliefs and, in some cases, corresponding to isolated inner reliefs whose origin is due to recent tectonic activity. On the Geomorphological Map, in the central part of the Plain, some pieces of evidence reported in the literature as probable superficial expressions of neotectonic faults (<
