When a core-collapse supernova (SN) explodes, only 1% of its energy is released through electromagnetic waves: the rest is emitted via neutrinos. If a galactic supernova will show up during its data taking, DarkSide20k, a future 20 ton liquid-argon dual-phase TPC, designed for the direct detection of dark matter particles, will perform a flavor-insensitive detection of SN neutrinos via coherent elastic neutrino nucleus scattering (CE$\nu$NS), providing additional information on the explosion mechanism. Furthermore, by the comparison with a charged current detection, discrimination between neutrino mass orderings, normal or inverted, can be inferred.
