A pupil of Carlo Biondi, an amateur maker in Avellino, Fracassi was born in Sant’Antonio di Gatteri in 1899. He began his professional career in Cesena, and moved to Rimini in 1959, where he died in 1973. His workshop and tools are still preserved in Cesena. He exhibited at the Cremona Bicentenniale in 1937. He worked to various models, with brown or yellow varnish, and his instruments are well made in the twentieth century Cremonese style.
