His earliest-known instrument is a viola from 1880, which shows an experienced hand. De Zorzi adopted many traditions of the classical Tuscan school and generally used a highly recognizable personal model. He used local wood and a 'framed' brand in the style of Gabrielli. Invented a large instrument called the contraviolino. His workshop was taken over by his pupil Silvio Vezio Paoletti after his death.
