    Abstract

    Recent geological studies performed at Etna allow reassessing the stratigraphic frame of the volcano where distinct evolutionary phases are defined. This stratigraphic reconstruction was chronologically constrained on the basis of a limited number of U-Th and K-Ar age determinations whose uncertainty margins are sometimes too wide. For this reason, we successfully adopted at Etna the
