Is it correct to write "Chiara's forty years"? Even if"old" is missing I keep on thinking that there's something wrong in it...

Let me try to help you out!

In the phrase "Chiara's 40 years" there is indeed something missing. You have to specify 'old' or 'of age' or something similar.

1. Chiara's 40 years old. Chiara's 40 years of age. Chiara's 40 years young. etc.

BUT! You can just say "Chiara's 40." In this case, this sentence is correct.

1. Hi, my name's Jack and I'm 27. -> no need to say 'old' or anything other than that.

I hope this helps!
