Giovanni Ferrari (6 December 1907 2 December 1982) was an Italian football (soccer) player. He played 125 times for Juventus F.C and scored 35 goals for the club. He also managed Inter from 1942 to 1943.

Ferrari was born in Alessandria.

He won 5 Championships with Juventus, 2 with Inter and 1 with Bologna.

Along with Giuseppe Furino, he is one of two players to have won eight Serie A titles. (Ciro Ferrara would also have won eight if the 2004/05 title by Juventus were not taken away due to the match-fixing scandal. Virginio Rosetta also won eight national championships, but three of them came before the formation of a professional Serie A.)

With the Italian national team he won two World Cups (in 1934 and 1938) as a player. He later was the head coach of Italy from 1960 to 1961, and was part of the technical commission with Paolo Mazza leading Italy in the 1962 FIFA World Cup.

He died in 1982 aged 74.
