Sampdoria are still hopeful of a European place and will be delighted to have claimed three points.
A Sergio Volpe penalty gave them a fine start, but just a minute later veteran striker Beppe Signori levelled for Bologna.
Aimo Diana put Sampdoria ahead, and when Giacomo Cipriani added a third, the game looked beyond Bologna.
However, Sampdoria were made to sweat in the last 20 minutes when Carlo Nervo grabbed a second for the visitors - but clung on for victory.
Elsewhere, Empoli took a point towards safety after holding Lecce to a 0-0 draw.
Empoli were hoping to make home advantage count and win three points that could prove crucial at the end of the season.
However, neither defence was breached and the sides shared the points.
