Hi Gianluca,
do you mean something like a graphic inside another graphic? This can be 
done by "Epilog" and "Rectangle". e.g.:

Plot[f[x], {x, -0.1,
    1}, Epilog -> Rectangle[{0.5, -2}, {1.2, 1}, Plot[f[x], {x, -0.1, .1}]]]

Plots may also be combined using Show. e.g.:

g1 = Plot[f[x], {x, -0.1, 1}];
g2 = Plot[f[x], {x, -0.1, .1}];
Show[g1, Graphics[Rectangle[{0.5, -2}, {1.2, 1}, g2]]]

If you want the plots not nested but arranged on a rectangular array, 
you should look up "GraphicsArray"

Sincerely, Daniel
