A story, that of Aspromonte Geopark, which began over half a billion years ago, when Italy was not yet there, even before Pangea separated and Tethys was born, that is, when, on the Northern edge of the super continent Gondwana in the middle of the Paleozoic Era, numerous sediments are formed which would have been the oldest origin of today’s rocks that form our Aspromonte now. The first Orogeny of the three involving Aspromonte occurs between 350 and 250 million years ago, the Hercynian one, during the Triassic. Shortly after, about 228 million years ago, the Sardinian-Corsican block and the Arco Calabro Peloritano attached to the European continent can be distinguished. The Adria, where part of the Italian territory will then reside, is attached between Europe and Asia, Sicily instead to the African continent, therefore the two supercontinents, Gondwana and Eurasia, according to the Theory of Continental drift begin to move away, the Italian Apennine areas were semi-submerged by the sea with visible reliefs only in Tuscany and Sardinia; they were flat and marshy areas lapped by the tides. The Aspromonte begins to detach itself, in the Middle Jurassic period, between 180 and 150 million years ago, when Africa separates from America causing a series of transformations that also affect the subsequent Mediterranean area. It is the birth of the Atlantic Ocean and the Piedmont-Ligurian Ocean. Africa begins its counterclockwise rotary movement closing the Tethys Ocean and opening a new tectonic phase which pushes Adria towards Europe, closes the Piedmont-Ligurian Ocean and prepares to the so-called Alpine Orogeny which would have occured between 100 and 50 millions of years ago. This second important Orogeny begins a process between the Mesozoic and the Cenozoic, forming the Alpine Range that contains the Calabrian-Peloritan Arc. Around 55 million years ago, in the middle of the Eocene everything is in motion. In “only” 20 million years a third Orogeny takes place, the Apennine one and between 30 and 10 million years ago begins the deep migration-rotation on an axis which will be the Ligurian Gulf that brings the Sardinian-Corsican Block almost into ist actual position and forms the Apennine chain entirely. The Calabrian Arc and therefore the Aspromonte are pushed over the Apennines and empedded between what is defined, the San Gineto line to the north and the Taormina line to the south. Between 6 and 5 million years ago, in the Upper Miocene, the glaciation took place. Between 2 and 1.5 million years ago, rapid and sensitive tectonic uplifts, still in progress, lift the Calabrian-Peloritan Arc, giving it significant characteristics and particular uniqueness due to its central position in the Mediterranean sea, a very important connotation of Europ’s southernmost Alpine mountain massif.
