In the 1911-1912 season Zampieri made guest appearances at the Paleis Voor Volksvlijt of Amsterdam. Here he sang in  ‘’Rigoletto’’, ‘’Fedora’’, ‘’Pagliacci’’, ‘’Carmen’’ and ‘’La Traviata’’. From Amsterdam he went to Bucharest and sang at the Teatro Blandazic in ‘’Cavalleria Rusticana’’, ‘’Tosca’’, ‘’Pagliacci’’ and ‘’Un Ballo in Maschera’’. His last appearance was at the Teatro Delle Varietа of Abbiategrasso, where he performed in ‘’Norma’’. In Italy he appeared in Palermo (Teatro Massimo, 1909), Naples (Teatro Bellini, 1908), Pistoia (Teatro Manzoni, 1911). Zampieri made 3 records for Odeon Fonotipia.
