He joined the club in time for the 1928-29 season and would stay at Juventus until 1935, winning five consecutive league titles in 1931, 1932, 1933, 1934 and 1935. After leaving Italy, Orsi played the rest of his career in South America.

This also allowed him to be a part of the side that won the 1934 World Cup, in the final of which he scored. He died in 1986 aged 84.
