This article is a part of the thematic issue Peri-Tethy: stratigraphic correlations 1

New and previous data on the mainly marine Carboniferous to Permian sequence of the Apennine Chain and its foreland in Italy (especially Tuscany plus Lucania and Apulia) are summarized. Of special interest is the restored correlation between a shallow-water carbonate platform and the related basin with turbidites and olistostromes, pointing to the Hercynian outer foredeep tectofacies.
