As such it has been the object of a plethora of studies [e. Notice that this sense of shear, associated with contractional tectonics across the Apennines [ Billi et al. In the wake of the evidence supplied by these earthquakes, Fracassi and Valensise  reinterpreted the seismotectonics of the earthquake sequence, possibly the largest in Italian history, suggesting to extend the buried MGsz further to the west toward the core of the Apennines see section 3. This sector of the northern African margin is bounded to the east by the Malta Escarpment Figure 1 , an inherited Mesozoic tectonic boundary separating the continental crust of the Pelagian block from the oceanic crust of the Ionian basin [ Scandone et al.
Similarly to what is observed in the Adriatic foreland see section 2. Grasso et al. The Mesozoic to Quaternary overburden consists mainly of interlayered volcanic and marine sedimentary successions with a total thickness in excess of 5 km [ Jongsma et al. On the basis of offset drainage patterns, Catalano et al. This offset was attained between 1. These latter two points will be thoroughly discussed in sections 3. To the east, it is bounded by the Malta Escarpment, which marks the progressive transition from continental to oceanic crust in the Ionian Sea [ Catalano et al.
In contrast, their sense of motion has been variously interpreted e. On the basis of evidence of synsedimentary activity, these faults are assumed to have operated since the Miocene. Available seismic reflection lines allow the Scicli offshore to be mapped for a minimum length of 40 km [ Grasso et al. They were both complex events generated by the rupture of adjacent or nearby fault segments, and caused widespread destruction and significant effects on the environment Guidoboni et al. The Gargano earthquake was followed on the same day by a M w 5. The Sicily earthquake was felt all over eastern Sicily and was preceded by a strong foreshock on 9 January M w 6.
The seismic sequence lasted until Most likely the main shock itself included two or more subevents, as suggested by the existence of two separate concentrations of damage, but this hypothesis is not explicitly backed by the available historical sources. Such a source, however, would explain the occurrence of the tsunami but not the observed damage pattern, since the largest shaking took place inland, 10—20 km from the coastline and south of the Lesina Lake Figure 2.
Most of the proposed sources for the Gargano earthquake are instead onshore [ Salvi et al. Also in this case the main open question regards the mismatch between the hypothesized offshore source and the damage pattern, which displays the highest intensities inland Guidoboni et al. We remark that, similarly to the case of , only an inland source is compatible with the observed intensity distribution.
An offshore source 1 would not explain the observed intensity decay along the coast and 2 would require an unrealistically high seismic moment to account for the very large intensities X and XI reported over 50 km west of the Ionian coast. Sirovich and Pettenati  proposed a NNE oriented, 60 km long fault nearly overlapping the VSsz and characterized by oblique motion.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, Gutscher et al. Lavecchia et al. In the Gargano, historical seismicity concentrates near the eastern and northern coasts, testifying to the activity of the Mattinata Fault and of other still unknown structures Figure 2. Sizable earthquakes occurred on 31 May M w 6. The historical seismicity of the Hyblean foreland is much more significant Figure 3 and includes several destructive earthquakes, some followed by a tsunami [ Tinti et al. Among them, the 3 October , M w 5. Castello et al. Milano et al. The 31 October to 1 November Molise earthquake sequence shed light on the potential of the westernmost reach of the MGsz Figure 2.
Two similarly large M w 5. Similarly to the Gargano area, seismicity extends down to the depth of the Moho, about 30 km, and concentrates in the 15—25 km depth interval.
The 13 December , M L 5. In map view this earthquake falls on or just to the west of the Malta Escarpment, but its depth 22 km indicates that it occurred well below the rather shallow NE dipping normal faults that delineate the submarine scarp. No breakout data are available for the Adriatic foreland near the Gargano Promontory Figure 2 , but to the south, within the same foreland, the stress map of Italy [ Montone et al. Finally, Barba et al. At the scale of the country, studies using GPS velocities from campaigns [ Hollenstein et al.
Ferranti et al. For instance, Giuliani et al. The Mattinata Fault has also been interpreted as the source of sizable historical earthquakes e. Chilovi et al. The 15 km estimate, however, was originally proposed by De'Dominicis and Mazzoldi [ ] as a cumulative value for the entire slip history of the Gondola Fault Zone.
On the basis of analog modeling, Di Bucci et al. Tondi et al. Unfortunately, the state of activity of the Scicli offshore is not backed by background seismicity data Castello et al. This system can be subdivided into three main segments: the Cava d'Aliga, Ragusa, and Giarratana faults, from south to north, respectively [ Catalano et al.
Nevertheless, a swarm of historical and instrumental earthquakes up to magnitude 5. Whether and how the VSsz continues across this area is unknown: no data are available to even speculate on this issue. In detail, both shear zones display two fault systems in the foreland, the first of which is submerged Gondola Fault Zone and Scicli offshore, respectively whereas the second one is exposed in the mainland Mattinata Fault and Scicli onshore, respectively. A third fault system is located near the front of the chain, buried below the foredeep deposits or covered by pillow lavas Chieuti High and Vizzini Fault Zone, respectively.
The MGsz also exhibits a fourth fault system buried below the frontal part of the Apennines wedge. The most recent slip reversal of the MGsz has been interpreted as related to the contemporaneous deactivation of the southern Apennines frontal thrust ramp [ Di Bucci et al. In Sicily, the frontal thrust ramp of the Gela nappe in correspondence with the VSsz ceased its motion roughly at the same time [ Patacca and Scandone , b ].
Therefore, we hypothesize a similar reason also for the slip reversal along the VSsz. Notice that the frontal thrust deactivation must not necessarily correspond to the end of the contraction in the whole chain, as it depends on the critical taper of the wedge front. In the absence of this integration, the sense of shear and even the mere state of activity or quiescence of both the MGsz and VSsz would still be debated.
Some of these earthquakes Tables 1a and 1b have been positively associated with the fault systems comprising the investigated shear zones Figure 4.
