Francesca Ferretti plays for the team Liu Jo Nordmeccanica Modena
Ferretti started playing volleyball at Giovolley Reggio Emilia youth teams and at the age of fourteen made her debut for the first team in the Serie B2. In 2000, she moved to Club Italia and became involved in the Italian national youth teams between 2000 and 2001, finishing second at the 2000 Women's Junior European Volleyball Championship and winning the 2001 Girls' Youth European Volleyball Championship.
After one season at Club Italia, she moved to Despar Colussi Perugia and made her debut in the Serie A1 in 2001. For the following season she signed with BigMat Chieri in September 2002, winning the 2002–03 Serie A2 championship (and promotion to Serie A1) and reaching the finals of the Serie A2 Italian Cup with the club.
On 28 May 2003, she made her debut for the senior Italian national team in a 3–2 victory against Cuba played in Ancona. A few months later she signed with Volley Modena, coached by Giovanni Guidetti, ahead of the 2003–04 season. She reached the Serie A1 playoffs semifinals during that first season at the club.
Later in 2005, Ferretti returned to BigMat Chieri under the coaching of Giovanni Guidetti, but during a Serie A1 match against Asystel Novara on 30 October 2005, she injured her right knee. Further exams confirmed she suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury and on 30 November 2005, she had a successful surgery which included the anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and medial meniscus replacement of her right knee. She spent 8 months recovering and missed the remaining of the 2005–06 season.
Back for the 2006–07 season, her club performances helped BigMat Chieri finish sixth and reach the Serie A1 playoffs. After the end of the season, on 12 June 2007, she signed with Scavolini Pesaro before joining the national team which won both the 2007 Women's European Volleyball Championship and the 2007 FIVB Volleyball Women's World Cup.
In 2008, the authorized biography book Un angelo biondo - Francy Ferretti (A blond angel - Francy Ferretti) by Camilla Cataldo was published in Italy.
The 2008–09 season was even more successful, she won the 2008 Italian Supercup, the Italian Cup and for the second consecutive year, the Serie A1. In 2009–10, she won her second consecutive Italian Supercup, reached the semifinals of the Italian Cup and won her third consecutive Serie A1. She won the Italian Supercup for a third consecutive year in 2010 and finished fourth at the 2010–11 Champions League.
In May 2012 she signed with Rebecchi Nordmeccanica Piacenza. In her first season at the club she won the 2012–13 double (Serie A1 and Italian Cup) and reached the finals of the CEV Challenge Cup. The 2013–14 season, her second at the club, was also very successful as she won the treble (Supercup, Cup and Serie A1). That meant she had won 13 domestic titles (five Serie A1, four Cups and four Supercups) in the last 7 seasons.
In May 2014, she agreed on a year contract to play for Rabita Baku of the Azerbaijani Super League. On 16 August 2014, while playing for the national team at the 2014 FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix match against Germany, she had a right knee injury. On 19 August 2014, she had a successful surgery to remove meniscus damaged fragments on her right knee. She recovered in time to play the 2014 World Championship, which Italy was fourth place after losing 2-3 to Brazil in the bronze medal match.
In the 2014–15 season, her new club, Rabita Baku was competing in the Super League and the Champions League. Ferretti started the season in both competitions, but a Champions League group stage defeat to Chemik Police which eliminated the club from the tournament in late January 2015, lead to uncertainty at the club due to its finances and on 5 February 2015 her contract with the club was terminated by mutual agreement.
In late February 2015, she signed with Liu Jo Modena for the remaining of the 2014–15 season and made her debut for the club in the semifinal of the Italian Cup on 28 February 2015. She reached the Italian Cup final, but the club was defeated by Igor Gorgonzola Novara. She signed a two-year contract to remain at the club before the start of the 2015–16 season.
On 19 May 2016, when Liu Jo Modena ceased its volleyball activities and joined Nordmeccanica Piacenza, she became a Liu Jo Nordmeccanica Modena player.
Currently, Francesca Ferretti is 38 years, 9 months and 20 days old. Francesca Ferretti will celebrate 39th birthday on a Wednesday 15th of February 2023.
