The book starts from a review of several contributions about implicit theories of creativity. The research is then described according to defined steps as follows: the definition and the application of an instrument to evaluate the restructuring act, a core mechanism of the creative process; the application of the instrument together with other tests to measure how children express their creativity and how they consider the creative people. Main evidences of the study are discussed and the conclusive section of the book arises important educational and methodological questions.
