For a normal change of trains I would say yes. But if you have a lot of luggage you may have problems, check on the Swiss Rail website www.sbb.ch/en which platfrom your trains arrive at and depart from. Then even if you miss your chosen train there will be another in 30 minutes or an hour.
Be ready to move as the train pulls into the station and remember the lower platform numbers are to your left as you leave the train and walk towards the end of the platform.
11 minutes is more than enough even with heavy luggage - if your arriving train is in time. And this is the big question, as trains from Italy tend to be late. There aren't trains to Paris every 30 min., but still a few per day. If you miss your train, you loose your reservation, but you could still book at the ticket office in Zurich for the next one to leave.
Oller is right. Almost ALL the trains starting in Italy are late arriving here. So personally I would allow more than 11 mins to make a connection to another international train.
Why not give yourself a gap of around 3 hours, check your luggage in a locker at the station and walk down the Banhnhofstrasse and explore the old town. Have a light meal and get back on the train. You can have a "mini city break" this way!!
This shouldn't be a problem. Even if your train from Italy is delayed the connection to Paris will probably wait a few minutes. By the way, there's a trick to save time: you do not need to walk all the way down the platform to the head of the train to be able to change platforms. There is an underground connection between platforms (with stairs, elevators and escalators) somewhere between platform sectors B and C. If your seat is near the engine the underground connection is no use, but if your seats are in the middle or towards the end of the train the underground connection is great.
