He studied in Milan with Vincenzo Villani and probably made his debut in 1907. Already in 1909 he arrived in Istanbul, Turkey, where at the Teatro Petit Champs he performed in ‘’Ruy Blas’’, ‘’Trovatore’’ and ‘’Andrea Chenier’’. 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 ‘’Traviata’’. From Amsterdam he went to Bucharest, where at the Teatro Blandazic he sang in ‘’Cavalleria rusticana’’, ‘’Tosca’’, ‘’Pagliacci’’ and ‘’Ballo in maschera’’. His last appearance was at the Teatro Delle Varietà of Abbiategrasso, where he sang the role of Pollione in ‘’Norma’’. In Italy he performed in Palermo (Teatro Massimo, 1909), Naples (Teatro Bellini, 1908), Pistoia (Teatro Manzoni, 1911). Zampieri made 3 records for Odeon Fonotipia.
