MILAN - Inter beat Roma 2-1 in Thursday's Tim Cup final return leg at the Giuseppe Meazza but the Giallorossi lift the trophy for the first time since 1991 with an aggregate score of 7-4.
Argentine duo Hernan Crespo and Julio Cruz sparked a second-half comeback with two quick goals but Simone Perrotta scored in the final stages after the dismissal of Ivan Cordoba.
Inter needed four goals without conceding to retain their trophy, and could have gone into the break with a substantial lead.
After just four minutes Dejan Stankovic beat Doni with a delightful chip, only to see the ball bounce off the bar and behind for a goal kick.
The Serbian midfielder went close again minutes later with a thunderous drive from distance.
It was all Inter in the opening period and Mancini's men had a clear penalty claim waved away on 9 minutes when Ferrari and Panucci held back Stankovic to prevent a sure goal from Mariano Gonzalez' cross.
Inter continued to dominate but lost Vieira to injury midway through the half, forcing Mancini to reshuffle his pack.
The Inter coach brought on Julio Cruz and reverted to a 4-4-2.
In-form Argentine forward Crespo, scorer of Inter's two goals in the first leg, forced a point-blank save from Doni with a bullet header from Gonzalez' cross.
Roma enjoyed more possession in the middle after Inter's tactical switch but rarely threatened the Inter goal, their only meaningful chances falling to Italian trio Totti, Aquilani and De Rossi from distance.
Crespo went close again with a cheeky backheeled effort on the turn, and Cordoba headed over a Figo corner before Inter had a second penalty claim turned down when Maicon was shoved off the ball by Aquilani.
In added time at the end of the first half Cruz bundled over the line Crespo's angled shot from the right, but the flag went up for offside.
There was no ruling out Crespo's opening goal five minutes after the interval. The Argentine met Maicon's pin-point cross from the right and sent a flicked header beyond the reach of Doni to make it seven goals in four games.
Inter snatched a quick second when Cruz fired through Doni's legs from a tight angle after receiving from Figo.
Fifteen minutes in, Roberto Mancini was 'sent off' by Morganti after protesting over a free kick.
Ivan Ramiro Cordoba followed his coach into the player's tunnel after picking up his second yellow for handball.
In between, Roma went close when Cristian Chivu's curling free kick went just wide of the left post.
The Giallorossi found more spaces coming forward against ten-man Inter, and grabbed the knockout goal with six minutes remaining when Perrotta slotted home Totti's fast cross-shot.
Francesco Toldo made a couple of vital saves in the closing stages after Crespo volleyed over a headed pass from Cruz.
Roma were reduced to ten men in additional time when Panucci was shown a straight red card for a last man foul on substitute Recoba.
