Chievo started brightly and took the lead on 22 minutes when Lorenzo D´Anna converted from the penalty spot after Mauro Camoranesi had upended Giuseppe Sculli in the box.
Juve quickly fashioned a response, with Nicola Legrottagli coming back to haunt his former club by heading home powerfully after finding oceans of space at a free-kick.
David Trezeguet had a largely quiet game, but he netted what proved to be the winner on 49 minutes when pulling off his marker Salvatore Lanna before slamming a shot into the corner.
Trezeguet may have scored the winner, but the Turin club can thank Gianluigi Buffon for preserving all three points as he pulled off a wonderful save to deny Mauricio Pinilla.
Roma fired a warning that they will be no back number in Serie A this term, with Fabio Capello's men maintaining their 100 percent record with a 5-0 mauling of Brescia.
The Roman club disappointed last term but they have started the season with renewed vigour and proved far too good for Brescia.
Vincenzo Montella netted the opener on ten minutes, as Roma made their early pressure tell.
A financial wrangle forced Cristian Chivu to wait for his Roma debut, but the Romanian put the problems behind him with the second of the match on 15 minutes.
Roma talisman Francesco Totti then took control of the game, with a brace of goals on 22 and 58 minutes, while John Carew put a gloss on the scoreline with a late penalty.
Juve and Roma are joint top of Serie A and they will meet in a mouthwatering clash next week.
Marco Materazzi was the unlikely hero for Internazionale, as the defender's goal on 28 minutes handed Hector Cuper's men a hard-fought 1-0 win at Siena.
Parma have shrugged off the loss of Adrian Mutu, with a 3-0 win over Perugia raising expectation for the season.
Mark Bresciano opened the scoring on 23 minutes, with Adriano doubling the advantage from the penalty spot on 50 minutes.
Alberto Gilardino made the points safe with a third on 78 minutes.
Lecce secured their first points of the season thanks to a 3-1 win over Ancona.
Sebastiano Siviglia fired Lecce in front on 31 minutes, but Ancona gave themselves hope when Maurizio Ganz levelled from the spot on the hour.
Lecce, though, turned on the style in a five-minute spell as Mirko Vucinic and Marco Cassetti scored on 74 and 79 minutes respectively as the home side clinched the points.
David Pizzaro's late penalty handed Udinese a notable 1-0 win at Modena, as they had to play for most of the game with 10 men after Do Carmo Nieto Alberto was sent-off on 28 minutes.
Empoli and Reggina played out a 1-1 draw, with Antonio Di Natale cancelling out Santos Mozart's early effort for the visitors.
