During his club career, Ferrante played for Pro Vercelli, Fiorentina (1963–72), and Vicenza (1972–76).

At international level, Ferrante earned 3 caps for the Italy national football team between 1970 and 1971.[3] He was included in the Italian squad for the 1970 FIFA World Cup, although he did not make a single appearance as Italy went on to reach the final of the tournament, only to be defeated by Brazil.[4]
