Artist member of the Academy of the Pantheon Virtuous, and of the San Luca Academy, he was estimated by the numerous English gentlemen who resided in Rome during the golden time of the "Gran Tour".

He took par in the artistic archaeological expedition organized by Sir Richard Colt Hoare which was supposed to cover the distance between the Via Appia from Rome to Brindisi. The journey was interrupted because of the weather but this did not prevent Labruzzi to complete more than 400 drawings that are a unique evidence of the conditions the Ancient Via Appia in the 18th Century.
