Seismic reflection, telluric and gravity results are given for the lifted area of Ferrara, in Northern Italy. The agreement is shown between the available shallow seismic data and the gravity evidences. For a portion of the above area where seismic results are particularly poor the vertical gradients method gives a resolution of a gravity anomaly and confirms the telluric information. The residual gravity values, the vertical gradients and the telluric data along a seismic line crossing the zone are compared with seismic results and with evidences from adjacent wells.
