Uninterpreted (a) and interpreted (b) 21Sud seismic reflection line, cutting through the slope of Timpe Plateau and the Catania Plain offshore (see Fig. 1 for location). The latter consists of a depressed sector, rooted by the same Plio-Quaternary substratum characterizing the Timpe Plateau and filled by a thick sedimentary package with intercalated volcanics (orange areas). The push-up affects also the southeastern slope of Timpe Plateau, producing an important shortening.
