Hi Francesco,
Yes, now that you have DOCK results, you would open and display the  
"empty" receptor in Chimera and with the ViewDock tool, open and  
display the docked ligands (your mol2 file).  You can just open the  
receptor structure (pdb or mol2) the normal way, with File... Open.

See the Chimera tutorial on viewing docked ligands:

There is also full documentation on the ViewDock tool (the tutorial  
does not use all of its many features):
