The Calabrian-Peloritani Arc and the adjacent Tyrrhenian and Ionian Seas (Southern Italy) are sites of remarkable geodynamic activity, as shown by their seismic history, space distribution of the instrumental seismicity and current geodetic observations. At a site inside the Calabria University Campus, sporadic absolute measurements of g and continuous gravity recordings are currently performed, aimed both to characterize the tidal behaviour of such a structurally anomalous geological region and to detect possible gravitative phenomena associated with progressive mass displacements or with probable major seismic events. We will report here on the results of first observations.
