The quiescent Colli Albani volcano is composed of overlapping edifices, with each showing changes in volcanic style over the 600-ka history of the volcanic field. The edifices and changes in eruption style through time are indicated in the field by the major unconformities, which have been identified from surface geology and borehole stratigraphies. This reconstruction of the major unconformities allows for three-dimensional geometric reconstruction of the relevant rock packages, computation of the deposit volumes, and evaluation of syn-volcanic tectonic or volcano-tectonic activity. Furthermore, some rock packages, such as the Pisolitic Tuffs, the Tufo Lionato and the Albano maar deposits,...
