We apply the Colour Family Drawing Test, as a development of the traditional black and white test, for cross-cultural comparison. The participants, aged 7 - 10 years, both genders, were examined individually. Each subject sat at a single table with a white rectangular card of standard size, 24 well-sharpened colour pencils, a black pencil, an eraser and other appropriate tools. S-he received this verbal instruction: -Draw your family-. The procedure was firstly applied to 120 participants attending primary schools of Rome Biasi, Bonaiuto and Levin, 2014. The families were evaluated through a semi-structural interview conducted with the children’s teachers and divided into: Harmonious versus Very Conflictual Families. The drawings made by children of Harmonious Families consistently used -Reassuring and Playful Colours- Pink, Orange, Sky Blue, Light Green, Light Yellow, other pastel colours; and were larger, tidier and more proportioned to respect the opposite group. Children belonging to Conflictual Families used mostly -Alarming and Serious Colours- Grey, Black, Dark Bleu, Violet, Olive Green and their drawings were less extended, more often disordered and had typical deformations such as figures too thin. A second investigation examined 120 participants belonging to Asian immigrant families residing in Italy. A third investigation examined 120 participants belonging to Russian families of Moscow. Both last two investigations obtained very similar results on the use of colours, and gave a confirmation of the relevance of the Colour Family Drawing Test.
