Perhaps his most famous film, La Dolce Vita, slices into the decadent amoral core of Roman society with Fellini's trademark attention to detail and spectacular photography.
Marcello Mastroianni plays a gossip columnist (the term "paparazzi" derives from a character in the film) who aspires to be a more serious writer but knows he never will be, because like society, he is fascinated by the decadent hedonistic pursuits which are screamingly everywhere.
The Vatican was appalled by the film, but the public adored it, relishing the images Fellini fed them, most notably the now infamous scene of Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg frolicking in the Trevi Fountain.
This is a spectacular morality play which has lost none of its relevance in today's celebrity obsessed world.
La Dolce Vita won the Canne Palme d'Or in 1960, the 1962 Oscar® for Best Costume Design as well as picking up nominations for Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Art Direction.
