Ettore Ferrari was the son of the sculptor and patriot Filippo Ferrari (1819-97), who both taught him to sculpt and imparted to him a passion for Republican politics.

In 1868 he won a biennial scholarship to study at the Accademia Nazionale di San Luca in Rome, where he remained until 1872. Ettore was a professor at the Accademia di San Luca, a deputy in the Italian Parliament and Grand Master of the Grande Oriente d'Italia, the main Masonic body in Italy.

In 1887, he created a statue of Ovid for the city of Constanţa, Romania, the ancient Tomis, where the Latin poet was exiled. This statue has been duplicated in 1925 for Sulmona, Ovid's birthplace. Another important work is the bronze statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi, created in 1892, located in Pisa in the square with the same name.

Another of Ferrari's work is the statue of Giordano Bruno, in the Campo de' Flori, Rome.
