The 2001 Coppa Italia Final was the final of the 2000–01 Coppa Italia, the 53rd season of the top cup competition in Italian football. The match was played over two legs on 24 May and 13 June 2001 between Parma and Fiorentina. The final was won by Fiorentina, who claimed their sixth Coppa Italia title with a 2–1 aggregate victory.

Previous finals[edit]

This was Parma's fourth Coppa Italia final and Fiorentina's tenth. Parma had previously won the trophy twice and Fiorentina had done so on five occasions.

First Leg[edit]

Summary[edit]

The first leg was at Parma's home, the Stadio Ennio Tardini. It remained level for the vast majority of the 90 minutes, but it was ex-Tardini regular Paolo Vanoli who got the only goal of the game for Fiorentina with just minutes left on the clock. Two years earlier, the left-back had scored for Parma to help them to victory in the 1999 UEFA Cup Final.

Second Leg[edit]

Summary[edit]

The second leg was back in Florence, where Fiorentina would be favourites to win and even stronger favourites to take the trophy because only a Parma win could deny them victory. A first half Savo Milošević strike made the Viola nervous, but Portuguese frontmen hit back for the home side halfway through the second period to put Fiorentina back in control of the tie and his side duly saw the game out and lifted the trophy.
