FERRETTI: L'ARTE DELLA SCENOGRAFIA / THE ART OF PRODUCTION DESIGN - AN EXTRAORDINARY ASSOCIATION COPY INSCRIBED BY DANTE FERRETTI TO DENNIS HOPPER
Electa & Accademia dell'Immagine, Milan, ITALY 2004 - 344pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. Text in English and Italian. With a biography, filmography and exhibition history. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Published only in Italy, this is an extraordinarily beautifully produced monograph covering the career and work of Dante Ferretti. In his more than forty years as one of Cinema's premier production designer/art director/costume designers, Ferretti has received eight Academy Award nominations - often in conjunction with his wife, noted art director Francesca Lo Schiavo. These include Martin Scorsese's "The Aviator", "Gangs of New York", "The Age of Innocence", and "Kundun", Neil Jordan's "Interview with the Vampire", Terry Gilliam's "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen", and Franco Zeffirelli's "Hamlet". Other notable film collaborations include "Casino", Anthony Minghella's "Cold Mountain", Julie Taymor's "Titus", Pier Paolo Pasolini's "Salo, or The 120 Days of Sodom", "A Thousand and One Nights", and "The Canterbury Tales", and Federico Fellini's "Satyricon". A truly massive volume, it features numerous examples of his preparatory sketches and production drawings for both film and opera, as well as still photographs; all accompanied by the designer's commentary. It also contains a lengthy dialogue between Ferretti and noted Italian film historian Gabriele Lucci. A brand new, most handsome example bearing the Tod's sponsorship imprint additionally BOLDLY SIGNED AND INSCRIBED "TO DENNIS / WITH ADMIRATION / Dante Ferretti" in black marker on the half title page. This copy hails from the library of the late, great actor and director Dennis Hopper and was acquired by us directly from his estate.
