Abstract

The first Wechsler-Bellevue forms (1939-1946) were translated into Italian in 1957. The WAIS (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, 1955) and the WISC (Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, 1949) were introduced in Italy in 1974 and 1956 respectively. The aim of this paper is to identify the ways in which the Italian verbal and cultural subtests (particularly the Information and Comprehension subtests) differed from the American version; and to show the attention increasingly paid to cultural diversity.
