band composed of intensely tectonized carbonate breccias. Finally, the fracturing and kinematic analysis on fault planes observed along the trenches, highlighted systems of left and right-lateral transtensional faults NW-SE, NNW-SSE and NE-SW trending, respectively, which antedate the extensional tectonic event. The reconstructed stress-field-orientation related to the latter tectonic system does not comply with the active stress field for this sector of the Sicilian chain. Moreover all the tectonic structures are sealed by Upper Pleistocene – Holocene continental deposits.
