The standard model consists of movable bridges and strings that are plucked with the fingers of his right hand. The size zheng ranging from 120 to 170 cm in length, the jumpers are mobile and are moved to vary the tuning of the instrument. The strings that were originally silk, today are more commonly made of steel and nylon. From the middle of the twentieth century began to make tools with 18, 21 and 25 strings, but the 21-string version remains the most commonly used. The open strings are tuned in pentatonic scale semitonal, so the 21-string instrument has four full octaves.
In the conventional technique, only the right hand plucking the strings of the performer, while the left hand was used to apply pressure and release the string by changing the pitch and producing vibrato and other sounds similar, while in contemporary technique also hand left can pluck the strings. The gu zheng has a history of over 2500 years. Ancient Chinese legends and literary texts frequently attributed to famous people or legendary figures the invention of this instrument. Zheng concerts are documented in the Shiji (Register of history) the oldest official Chinese text dating from the third century BC.

After graduation she graduated in engineering in Italy where she moved and now resides. In recent years he has played a concert activity in Italy and in China.
