The Pontine Islands consists of remnants of deeply eroded volcanoes, located on a structural high of the Latium continental shelf, which were active during the Pliocene up to the Early Pleistocene. Continental deposits, marine abrasional surfaces, raised beaches and aeolian sands, occurring at different places in the islands, indicate that the sea level fluctuated several times during the Quaternary, because of the combined effect of climatic changes and tectonics. -from English summary
