Introduction: Entrepreneurial Passion (EP) is considered a multidimensional construct relevant for entrepreneurial intention and performance. The EP Scale proposed by Cardon, Gregoire, Stevens & Patel (2013) distinguishes passion for founding, for inventing and for developing. The study presents the adaptation of the Italian 10-item version of the scale. Methods: A group of 535 entrepreneurs and 638 aspiring entrepreneurs completed a selfreport questionnaire. The factorial validity of the Italian EP Scale has been tested through confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and multigroup CFA using MPlus 7. Correlations were performed to test the concurrent validity of the scale. Results: CFA confirmed the three-factor structure of the scale. The measures of EP in the three domains showed a good internal consistency and significantly correlated with constructs related to EP in literature. Conclusions: This study contributes to validate the Italian version of the instrument. It could be a useful support for researchers and practitioners in the field of entrepreneurship.
