Abstract: Before seismic data were made available, the subsurface setting of the Umbria-Marche area was mainly derived from the extrapolation of surface data and from models resulting from analogies with other mountain chains around the world. During the ‘90s industrial seismic data availability considerably increased, allowing the definition of new, previously unknown features. Beside the industrial seismic data availability, a deep crustal, near vertical seismic section trending E-W was acquired (CROP-03) across the Italian peninsula from the Tyrrhenian to the Adriatic coast. The subsurface data defined the compressional deformation style (thin- Vs thick- skinned) and the extensional deformation style. A set of east-dipping low-angle-normal faults, which dissect the previous compressional structures and which are the dominant features controlling the extension of the Apennines were recognised. The subsequent application of the seismic data interpretation to seismotectonic issues, defined in more detail the subsurface geometries of the active faults and the relationships between upper crust structure and seismicity.
