We present a resource including perceptual strength norms for 1121 Italian words, extracted from the Italian version of the ANEW database. Norms were collected from 57 native-speakers. For each word, participants provided perceptual strength rating for each of the five perceptual modalities, namely hearing, taste, touch, smell and vision. The performance of the perceptual norms in predicting human behaviour was tested in two novel experiments, a lexical decision (n= 30) and a naming task (n=29), in which the same 1121 words were used as stimuli. Here we released our dataset, which contains aggregated mean values of participants' norm ratings, accuracy and reaction times.
