In recent years, growing studies evidence shows how creativity, in the form of divergent and convergent thinking, can foster psychological and cognitive well-being thanks to the ability to find different strategies in problem solving, providing a field in which it is possible to develop potentialities and in which fragile subjects, in particular the elderly, can find support for overcoming difficulties. For this purpose, it is important to have valid and shareable tools for evaluating creative skills in a preventive, promoting and enhancing perspective. This article pre-sents data collected by administering the creative test ATTA (Abbreviated Tor-rance Test for Adults). This test is used in several studies in the literature but vali-dated on an American sample. It is useful to provide a reference sample for fu-ture research, presenting preliminary data obtained from the administration of the test to elderly Italians adults, in order to be able to compare these with the American normative data.
Keywords: Creativity, ATTA, TTCT, divergent thinking, convergent thinking, adults, aging.
