Born in Bologna, Emilia–Romagna, Giacomo Bassoli started his professional career at Bologna F.C. 1909 along with his twin brother Alessandro. He spent 4 seasons in the reserve league, since 2006–07 season. In 2006–07 season he also played for its student U17 team (Allievi).

Lega Pro loans
In July 2011 G.Bassoli left for Santarcangelo in temporary deal (from Cesena/Bologna), along with K.Caidi, Gregorio (from Bologna/Cesena). The club also signed Simone Tonelli from Vicenza/Cesena, which sold by Cesena to Vicenza for another aggressive price in June 2011, and Nicola Del Pivo and Daniele Ferri from Cesena only.
However, G.Bassoli did not made any league appearance in 2011–12 Lega Pro Seconda Divisione. In January 2012, both K.Caidi and G.Bassoli left the club. G.Bassoli was signed by Valenzana, joining Luca Righini, who also sold by Cesena to Vicenza in aggressive price in 2010. Santarcangelo signed Francesco Laezza from Valenzana in the same deal. In the same window, Valenzana also got keeper Aldo Simoncini from Cesena.
In June 2012, the co-ownership deal was renewed. However, he did not receive any call-up for pre-season from Cesena.
After a season without a club, Bologna gave up the remaining 50% registration rights of Bassoli and Luppi, as well as Cesena gave up its portion on Caidi and Gregorio.
On 31 January 2014 he returned to Santarcangelo.
