This research focused on emotional expression in children during lockdown due to the spread of COVID-19. A particular case is represented by gifted people, who often show a higher and more intese emotional arousal and sensitivity. We proposed a questionnaire built ad hoc and filled in by 126 mothers who answered referring to each of their children (N = 225), both gifted and tyical development. First phase of analyses took account of a group of children who belong to family where there is at least one gifted child (N = 162) and a group of children with typical development (N = 63). Analyses did not reveal any significant dif-ferences between these two groups, both in the expression of emotions and states of mind. However, further analyses which compare gifted children (N = 100) to children with typi-cal development (N = 125) without considering the belonging family, showed how gifted children seem to experience higher level of apathy (p < .001) and impatience (p = .016) if compared to normotipic peers.
Keywords: Giftedness, COVID-19, emotion, state of mind, children.
