The aim of this study is to offer a contribution to the validation of the Italian version of the New Aesthetic Test proposed by Lindauer in 1985 and adapted from Dogana et al. (1999, 2002). The test measured aesthetic sensibility, a personality trait which includes cognitive, experiential, behavioral and aesthetically sensitive dimensions, shown by individuals with a deep interest in beauty in its various forms and with a vivid imaginative life. The questionnaire adapted from Dogana et al. (1999, 2002) in a 25-item version was tested on a small number of adolescents (16-20 years). In this research a sample of 1046 subjects, aged 15 to 50 years and equally distributed by gender, filled in the scale. The factor structure was checked by an exploratory and a confirmatory factor analysis. The instrument proved to be reliable and valid; it also allowed us to evaluate gender differences (aesthetic sensitivity is higher in females) and age (aesthetic sensitivity increases with age).
Keywords: Aesthetic sensibility, Italian validation test.
