The isolated Monte Vulture is a stratovolcano with a summit caldera and a few parasitic cones that erupted lavas and pyroclastics covering 150 km2. Petrologically and geochemically distinct, it is therefore classified as its own magmatic province: the Lucanian Magmatic Province, in the Apulian Region (Peccerillo, 2005). The most recent volcanic activity formed two intra-caldera maars and involved explosive eruptions of carbonate-rich tuff, with the Lago Piccolo di Monticchio maar dated at 0.141 Ma (Peccerillo, 2005; Villa and Buettner, 2009). Capaldi et al. (1985) reported the youngest dated products from Vulture as 0.42 million years old. Peccerillo (2005) give an age range of 0.8-0.13 Ma for Vulture volcanics.
