The innovative and unique quality of the work of the English film director and producer Alfred Hitchcock (1899 -1980) has made his films into a genre by themselves. Films like Rear Window (1954), Vertigo (1958), North by Northwest (1959) and Psycho (1960) will forever be recognised as classics in the history of filmmaking.

The exhibition Alfred Hitchcock nei Grandi Film della Universal Pictures (Alfred Hitchcock in the Great Films of Universal Pictures) celebrates the work and life of the Master of Suspense. Over 70 photographs and items from the archives of Universal Pictures allow the visitor to peek behind the scenes and discover how the special effects of famous scenes were constructed.

Music was one of the most important elements with which Hitchcock created tension and suspense and therefore an entire room is dedicated to the music of Hitchcock’s films.

Film critic Gianni Canova accompanies the visitor with a series of in-depth videos, analysing some of the unforgettable masterpieces.
