Multidisciplinary approach to the study of the evolution of orogens and associated sedimentary basins. Such approach implies the integration of (1) stratigraphy, (2) sedimentology, (3) structural analysis, (4) thermochronology, (5) petrography, and (6) paleogeography. The main goal is to obtain new data on the development and exhumation of selected orogenic sectors, also through the analysis of syntectonic sedimentary deposits. Our research group is active in several sectors of the Mediterranean region, including the Alpine-age orogenic belts of Italy, Anatolia and the Caucasian region, in cooperation with Italian and foreign researchers and institutions.
