The 22-year-old spent three seasons at Inter but failed to establish himself and was loaned out to Brescia for the second part of last season before his campaign was prematurely ended by injury.
The former Italian Under-21 captain impressed for Brescia last season and Milan moved for the highly-rated playmaker signing him on a four-year deal.
Pirlo operates in the same position as Rui Costa and the young Italian's arrival raises doubts over Milan's confidence in being able to bring Rui Costa to the Guiseppe Meazza following revelations of Real Madrid's interest in the Portuguese star.
The Fiorentina midfielder has also recently been the subject of interest from Parma, although any move by them to sign him would now seem dead and buried.
Meanwhile, Inter have sold 21-year-old striker Riccardo Ramazzatoni to Serie C club Gubbio.
