Born in Sarzana, Liguria, Bassi was a product of Empoli's youth system, joining the team in 2002, but started his professional career at Tuscan club Massese in 2003. In 2005 he returned to Empoli in a co-ownership deal. Bassi formally returned to Empoli on 1 July 2006. He became the team's first choice goalkeeper, ahead Daniele Balli, during the second half of the 2007–08 Serie A season. After the team were relegated, he remained as the first choice keeper. During the 2010–11 Serie B season, he left for Torino, to replace the recently departed Matteo Sereni. Empoli signed Jasmin Handanović to replace Bassi.
In July 2013 Bassi changed his shirt number to no.28. He was the team's first choice goalkeeper during the 2013–14 Serie B season. However, the next year, he was a backup to Luigi Sepe during the 2014–15 Serie A season.
Bassi was never capped for Italy at international level until the 2008 Toulon Tournament. The coach rested the regular starters of the under-21 team, and instead picked Bassi and Enrico Alfonso. They both shared the first choice goalkeeping role, as Italy went on to win the tournament. However, despite his success, Bassi did not go on to represent the under-23 side at the Beijing Olympics that summer.
