Fellini Satyricon (1969), directed by the master Italian director Federico Fellini, was first shown in Rome on 3 September 1969 and released throughout Italy on 18 September 1969. It is among the most famous (though unusual) representations of the Roman world. Originally both admired and attacked, this conference aims to mark the film’s 50th anniversary and reconsider its originality and importance.
