The reference to the title of the exhibition is clear, as mentioned: remember the Alfred Hitchcock film, Entitled Spellbound (in Italian "I will save you") Made in 1945 and for which the director himself he asked Salvador Dalí to create a dream sequence particular. Dalì, therefore, graphically reproduced some scenes of a dreamlike nature.
Originally the scene was supposed to last 20 minutes, but many parts were cut.

Hitchcock defined his film as "a manhunt story presented in a pseudo-psychoanalysis envelope".
