This research aims to identify and understand the possible approaches in psychological environment, through the images and imaginary as a therapeutic tool. The image is investigated in the film “projection”: this latter is not only intended as a visual projection on the plane of expression, but it is also the projection of the self, implemented by the director and the actors, but also by the spectator, who becomes a participating observer of the story told. An example that combines all these aspects can be identified in Hitchcock’s figure, for his film culture, for the recording technique, but also for his complex psychic characteristics. The critical synthesis of the most significant works of his film production, can be a possible example for the research proposed here. In particular, some elements of vision and representation were privileged in relation to the relationship between image, imaginary and psychological aspects.
