The weirdest, hallucinated Fellini’s movie: Satyricon

The surreal Fellini’s Satyricon

Satyricon, loosely based on the Roman homonymous book by Petronius, is a beautiful example of Roman novel. The surviving portions are an account of Encolpius and his lover misadventures.

The story is set in Nero Emperor Rome.

Satyricon is an important evidence for the reconstruction of the Roman everyday life.

Fellini’s movie is a fantasy drama film deliberately fragmented and surreal.

Fellini added also the hermaphroditic priestess, who does not exist in the original manuscript.
