Casuist and rabbi of Constantinople in the seventeenth century. His responsa (Constantinople, 1737) are valued for their keen analysis and terse style. Bassani maintained a learned correspondence with the great Oriental teachers of his time; and he is several times mentioned in the responsa of Joseph di Trani and Meïr de Boton. Judah Lerma, rabbi of Belgrade, was one of his pupils.
