Colli Albani is a quiescent caldera complex located within the Roman Magmatic Province, Italy. The recent Via dei Laghi phreatomagmatic eruptions led to the formation of nested maars. The largest of which is Albano Maar, which has erupted seven times in the last ca. 69 ka. Recently, detailed stratigraphic study has revealed changes in eruptive style through time, between base surge and fall (sub-plinian) and larger volume pyroclastic density current (Giordano et al., 20 lO). The erupted deposits are multi-component, crystal-rich (40-60%) and with a large cumulate and lithic content (15-20%). The multi-component and relatively well preserved nature of the Albano Maar erupted deposits allows for the study of a large cross-section of the magmatic system.
