During his permanence in Rome, lasted to 1716, Zipoli composed his only authorised published works “Sonate d'intavolatura” for pipe-organ and harpsichord, released in 1716. From the same lapse of time they're most likely belonging Sonata for violin and three Cantate for single voice and continuous bass. His affinity with religious order 'la Compagnia di Gesù' inspired a new course in his life. Following a Jesuit expedition he landed in Mar de la Plata probably in 1716. Reached south America Zipoli settled in Cordoba keeping-on his career as musician and soon his name became listed among the most influential composers of the continent.
