Abstract

Cassino municipality is located in a plio-pleistocenic basin, delimited by Latina Valley at SW, Cairo-Monteccasino Mt. at NW, and Venafrian Mt. at NE. Two structural lines that behave as cinematic release delimit the area, i.e. the Ortona-Roccamonfina and Val Roveto Atina Caserta line. The latter passes through the eastern margin of the basin and is an active fault in the segment between Sant Elia and San Pietro Infine. Stratigraphic sequence belongs to the Latium- Abruzzi platform, two thousand meter of dolostone and limestone. Platform is covered by tortonian post-collisional arenaceous and clayey deposits followed by piggy-back sequence. The plio-pleistocenic filling has an epi-continental and continental origin with loose gravels, loose sands and pudding stones on the bottom of a lacustrine series. Lacustrine environment is due to the volcanic edifice construction through the obstruction of Latina Valley. The thickness of the lacustrine deposit can reach even 80-100m. The hydrogeological conditions of the area are characterized by the presence of a multilayered surficial phreatic aquifer consisting of Plio-Quaternary deposits, which overlaps a deep confined carbonatic aquifer. The delivery of the carbonatic acquifer is represented by the Gari springs (Q= 15-20 m3/s). The geological and hydrogeological conditions are predisposing to natural and anthropogenic subsidence.
