Andrea Ferrari was born in Lalatta, Parma. He was educated at the Seminary. He was ordained to the priesthood on 20 December 1873 in Parma. He worked in the diocese of Parma from 1874 until 1890. He served as vice-rector of its seminary and professor of physics and mathematics in 1875 and was its rector in 1877. He was professor of fundamental theology, ecclesiastical history and moral theology at the seminary in 1878.
Pope Leo XIII appointed him bishop of Guastalla on 29 May 1890. He was transferred to the see of Como exactly a year later. Pope Leo raised him to the cardinalate, making him Cardinal-Priest of Sant'Anastasia, in the consistory of May 18, 1894. He remained at Como until he was transferred to the metropolitan see of Milan on 21 May 1894. Shortly after his appointment to Milan he took Carlo as a middle name in honour of Saint Charles Borromeo who was once Cardinal- Archbishop of Milan. Cardinal Ferrari participated in the conclaves of 1903 that elected Pope Pius X and 1914 that elected Pope Benedict XV. He died in 1921 in Milan.
