The plot of the novel by Guy Petronius is heavily modified by the director. However, as in the original source, the action takes place in the epoch of Nero’s rule around the handsome young man Encolpius, who is looking for his young lover, who escaped with their common friend, vulgarity and libertine Askilt.
Fellini interprets the book quite freely, boldly places accents where he is more interested. In the images of Roman life, Fellini shows the viewer a modern reality.

Along with Fellini, Alfredo Bini began his work on his own version of The Satyricon , known primarily for the fact that by the end of the 60s. Pierre Paolo Pasolini was the permanent producer, as well as the founder and owner of the Arco Film studio, where Pasolini made all of his early films.
Alberto Grimaldi sued, demanding that Bini stop production, but Bini proved that he had planned the adaptation of the novel Petronius since 1962, and then registered the name Satyricon. As a result, Grimaldi and Fellini not only failed to prevent the creation of a competing film, but also had to find a new name for their own  . After going through a large number of options, they decided to simply include the name Fellini in the title.
Later, the United Artists film company, for which Fellini filmed his version of Satirikon, bought the rights to the international rental of the Bini / Polidoro film and released it only three years later, after changing its name to “The Degenerates”  .
