This paper analyses the xenoliths found in the phreatomagmatic products of the most recent Via del Laghi maar field at Colli Albani volcano in order to investigate the nature of the substratum and its interaction with the magmatic system. The pre-volcanic sedimentary xenoliths are from the same rock formations that form the pre-orogenic Mesozoic–Cenozoic carbonatic pelagic succession cropping out in the nearby Apennine mountain belt, and the Pliocene post-orogenic marine sedimentary succession. Along with the sedimentary xenoliths, a large variety of thermo-metamorphic, metasomatic and magmatic xenoliths are present. Skarn xenoliths have been studied to estimate peak metamorphic P–T conditions...
