The famous deep crustal section of the Ivrea-Verbano Zone (IVZ, western Alps) has received enormous attention over the last three decades as one of the best examples of continental magmatic underplating. Recent investigations, comprising structural, petrochemical and geochronological data, point to the occurrence of a Sesia-type IVZ (i.e. central IVZ) and a Finero-type IVZ (i.e. northern IVZ), which underwent different magmatic and tectonic evolution. The proposed excursion aims to illustrate the Sesia-type IVZ as a complete sequence of a section from the mantle to a supervolcano and show the different geochronological, petrographic and geochemical characteristics between the Sesia-type and the Finero-type IVZ in the light of the results of latest research.
