...; Ghinassi, 2013 ). The basin-fill succession is subdivided into four synthems ( Regione Toscana, 2007a , 2007b ; Fidolini et alii , 2013 ; Sagri et alii , in press ). These synthems are, from bottom up: Castelnuovo dei Sabbioni (CSB), Montevarchi (VRC), Fosso Salceto (OLC) and Torrente Ciuffenna (UFF...

... of alluvial fan successions, which were capped by aeolian-reworked alluvial sand deposited at about 2.5 Ma. At about 2.3 Ma, a new deformative phase caused further basin widening, erosion along the SW margin and development of a small lake in the central areas. Deposition of the upper part of the Montevarchi...

... of these faunas, which are often associated with significant Villafranchian vertebrate remains. The Upper Valdarno Basin fill consists of four unconformity-bounded units: Castelnuovo dei Sabbioni, Montevarchi, Fosso Salceto (occurring in the Palazzolo sub-basin) and Torrente Ciuffenna synthems. Rich molluscan...

..., with a dominant axial drainage direction, alluvial, fluvio-aeolian and fluvial sediments (Montevarchi Synthem, VRC) deposited during Early Pleistocene. The VRC Synthem, being located in the hanging-wall of the Trappola normal fault system, is slightly tilted to the NE. Finally, during Early-Middle Pleistocene...

... are not closely spaced and/or if they have quite stable positions ( Nemec 1990a ; Postma 1990 ). Successions recording mouth-bar progradation are characterized by coarsening-upward trends, developed as sediments are progressively transported and deposited downstream, filling the accommodation at the river mouth...

.... These strongly folded deposits are overlain unconformable by Early Pleistocene sediments (Montevarchi Synthem), which display evidence for syn-depositional normal faulting. This suggests that the Upper Valdarno Basin experienced a phase of normal faulting that started at the base of Pleistocene (ca. 2.6-2.5 Ma...

... is to document the existence of pedogenized intervals within the Upper Valdarno basin fill and to describe and characterize them in terms of sedimentary and pedogenic processes. Thus we tested this approach on four stratigraphic intervals, selected within the whole succession because of their particular...
