(Consorzio Universitario Italiano per l’Argentina) for the development of applied researches on the Argentina territory, several research groups, belonging to selected Italian and Argentina Universities, converged in the last year on the research line devoted to the “Sustainable development of future towns”. This contribution focuses on the preliminary results achieved by this collaboration among the Universities of Camerino, Jujuy, Roma Tre, Salta, Sapienza. The project focuses on the application of robust methodologies and the development of new ones to explore the geothermal potential of the area of Rosario de La Frontera (NW Argentina) located at the northern edge of La Candelaria Ridge, one of positively inverted structures cropping out between the provinces of Salta and Tucuman. It belongs to the Santa Barbara System of the Andes retro-wedge. This approach intends to contribute to the sustainable development of the town of Rosario de La Frontera, that can be potentially based on the exploitation of medium enthalpy (90°
