Zucchi has been active in Cematex, having been involved in the ACIMIT delegation since 2015. He is the immediate past president of ACIMIT, and continues to be a staunch advocate of the sustainability cause, including promotion of the ACIMIT green label and the recycling of textile machinery.

Currently, he is the managing director and partner of Ferraro, a manufacturer specialising in finishing machinery.
