Description :
In this paper the AA. describe the geometry and kinematics of a contractional structure, consisting of a thrust and related minor structures, which doubled the Tuscan Nappe cropping out in the southern side of the Monte Amiata geothermal region (Selvena-Castell’Azzara area), during the building of the Northern Apennines. Presently, the thrusts consist of relic structures preserved within extensional horses. The whole evidence possibly make the Tuscan Nappe duplex system comparable with the structure of the Tuscan Metamorphic «basement», in terms of geometry, stacking pattern and timing, suggesting a probable common structural evolution even if a different structural levels. - (NF)
