During qualifications Ferrari finished 25th on beam but qualified to the floor exercise final in seventh place.

However event finals were canceled due to the 2020 coronavirus outbreak in Azerbaijan.

Ferrari made her return to the all-around at the 3rd Italian Serie A of 2021, over four years after her last all-around performance at the 2016 Olympic Games. She placed first in the all-around and helped Brixia place first as a team. In April Ferrari was selected to represent Italy at the European Championships in Basel alongside Alice D'Amato, Martina Maggio, and Giorgia Villa. During qualifications she finished seventh in the all-around and fourth on floor exercise, qualifying to both finals. Ferrari later withdrew from the all-around final as a precaution. On the last day of event finals she won the bronze medal on floor exercise, behind Jessica Gadirova of Great Britain and Angelina Melnikova of Russia, performing the exercise on the notes of "Bella ciao" and dedicating the medal to the Liberation Day of Italy. This medal came 7 years after her last medal in European Championships, and 15 years after her first one.

Ferrari competed at the Doha World Cup where she placed first in the all-around. As a result, she earned her nominative berth to compete at the 2020 Summer Olympics, her fourth Olympic Games. Weeks before the start of the Games, Giorgia Villa was injured and Ferrari was chosen to replace her on the four-person Italian team.

Ferrari represented Italy at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan alongside Asia D'Amato, Alice D'Amato, and Martina Maggio.
