The Monti Ernici volcanic field, also known as the Mid Latin Valley volcanic field, is a monogenetic center about 70 km SE of Rome. It consists of about 20 cinder cones, tuff cones, and associated lava flows and pyroclastic-flow deposits. The field was active from about 0.7 to 0.1 Ma (Peccerillo, 2005). Geochemically, the Ernici-Roccamonfina Province exhibits characteristics of both the Roman and Campanian Magmatic Provinces.
