Ferretti passes on life lessons

HOLLYWOOD — It was a busy Friday for Dante Ferretti, starting with an afternoon master class at UCLA, where the veteran production designer discussed his work with helmers Federico Fellini, Franco Zeffirelli and Martin Scorsese. While Ferretti said his experience on Scorsese’s “The Aviator” remained a blur — “Since I did the movie, I forgot everything” — he felt the sesh with Bruin dean Robert Rosen went smoothly overall.

After the class, he hightailed it over to Tod’s in BevHills to autograph copies of his new coffee-table tome, “Ferretti: The Art of Production Design.”

Cocktail party was attended by Scorsese, pic’s Leonardo DiCaprio, Harvey Weinstein, Dennis Hopper, Angela Bassett, Katie Holmes and Mena Suvari.
