Abstract

The interplay between magmatism and tectonics is pivotal for deciphering the tectonic and geodynamic evolution of mountain belts. In the northern Apennines - northern Tyrrhenian Sea orogenic system large amounts of magma were emplaced at shallow crustal levels since the middle-late Miocene to recent (e.g. Serri et al., 1993; Rosenbaum et al., 2008). In this sector of the Apennine chain the mutual relationships between magmatism and tectonics are still a matter of debate (e.g., Rossetti et al., 1999; Acocella and Rossetti, 2002; Musumeci et al., 2005; 2008; Rosenbaum et al., 2008). Elba Island, located in the Tyrrhenian Sea about 30 km west of the inner portion of the chain, is a key area where tectonics - magmatism relationships can be studied.
