In this study, the outer sector of the Central Apennines of Italy and the Adriatic foreland have been analyzed in order to reconstruct the geological-structural setting and the Neogene-Quaternary evolution of the fold-and-thrust belt.

Based on fieldwork data, existing geological maps, new seismic data, and well information, a regional balanced cross section has been realized. The transect, ∼140 km in length from the inner mountain belt to the Adriatic foreland, illustrates the structural style of the Apennines thrust system, the geometry of the different thrust fronts, the physiography of the foreland ramp, and the setting of the syn-tectonic basins infill....
