We present an up-to-date review of the existing data on the evolution of the Apennine–Tyrrhenian basin system and of the tectonic models developed to interpret the complex evolution of magmatism and volcanism along the Tyrrhenian margins of peninsular Italy from Miocene to the Present. The Tyrrhenian margin volcanic belt lies within a back-arc basin located on top of the NW-dipping Adriatic–Ionian slab, active along the convergent boundary between the Africa and Eurasia plates. It is characterized by significant crustal thinning, high thermal flow and huge production of mantle fluids. Seismic activity is very low and clusters in geothermal and...
