Summary – THE VILLAGE TEST AT THE TIME OF THE PANDEMIC: CABIN SYNDROME AND
CHILDHOOD TRAUMA. Starting from the research of the Gaslini Hospital on the psychological state of
children and families a few weeks after the lockdown, and from the emergence of symptoms attributable
to the so-called Cabin Syndrome, the article aims to detect its effects through the Village Test. After a brief
theoretical-methodological introduction of the test, some cases of subjects who were administered the test
before the pandemic and immediately after the lockdown are presented, in order to verify any differences.
Several subjects in the Village Test narrowed their range of action, closing themselves in a state of greater
protection and compacting, and in some cases eliminating the aspects that lead back to the relationship with
others. Finally, a hypothesis for detecting the trauma through the Village Test is presented.
