Goals from David Trezeguet and Alessandro Del Piero confirmed Juve as champions.
Goals from David Trezeguet and Alessandro Del Piero confirmed Juventus as Serie A champions for the second successive season on Sunday.
On the final day of the Scudetto season, Juve won 2-0 at Reggina to render Milan's late 2-1 win over Roma academic.
Fabio Capello's side needed only a point to stave off Milan's challenge and when Trezeguet handed his side the lead in the 22nd minute the title was destined for The Old Lady with Del Piero adding a late second to begin the celebrations in earnest.
The Rossoneri, meanwhile, minus injured Chelsea target Andrei Shevchenko, were given renewed hope of claiming top spot when Kaka converted a fifth-minute penalty.
But, as news filtered through to the Giuseppe Meazza of Trezeguet's strike for Juve, Carlo Ancelotti's side were pegged back by Philippe Mexes.
Roma, themselves, had no lack of motivation to earn the three points, with a top-four finish still within sight of Luciano Spalletti's side on the final day.
However Milan secured a last-ditch victory when Cesare Bovo was dismissed for a professional foul inside the area and late substitute Marcio Amoroso converted the stoppage time penalty.
As Roma suffered defeat, Fiorentina confirmed their place in next season's UEFA Champions League qualifiers with a 2-0 win over Chievo.
The prolific Luca Toni, who finished the season as the league's top scorer, shot the Viola into a 20th minute lead and the away win was wrapped up by Dario Dainelli five minutes from time.
Chievo finished the season in seventh and will compete in the Uefa Cup next season, along with capital rivals Roma and Lazio.
Lazio defeated Parma at Stadio Olimpico with Tomasso Rocchi the 60th minute matchwinner.
Third-placed Internazionale twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at Cagliari.
Andrea Capone shot the Sardinians into an eighth-minute lead but Argentine striker Julio Cruz pulled the visitors level three minutes later.
David Suazo regained the lead for his side in the 33rd minute but again the advantage lasted for just three minutes as Santiago Solari netted to draw a line under a fairly turbulent season for Roberto Mancini's team.
Palermo rounded off their successful campaign after Denis Godeas's 32nd minute strike secured a 1-0 win over already-relegated Messina and an eighth-placed finish for the Sicily outfit.
With the relegation places already decided before the final day, the bottom two clubs - Treviso and Lecce - free of end-of-season anxiety finished with morale-boosting wins.
Lecce surprisingly recorded a 3-1 win at Sampdoria.
Gennaro Delvecchio gave his side the lead in the 25th minute and a second half brace of goals from Axel Konan (52 & 85) left Samp embarrassed on home soil and a late consolation from Francesco Flachi could not spare their blushes.
Bottom club Treviso, meanwhile, finished with a 2-1 win over ten-man Udinese.
Mirko Pieri had given the visitors a 15th minute lead but the dismissal of Sulley Muntari for deliberate handball in the 35th minute proved to be the game's turning point.
Marco Borriello converted the resulting penalty for Treviso and the same player then claimed the winner 13 minutes from time.
Elsewhere, Ascoli defeated ten-man Empoli 2-1.
A brace of goals from Igor Budan in the 73rd and 85th minutes cancelled out Francesco Tavano's strike in the 25th minute with the home side's Francesco Pratali sent-off shortly before half-time.
Siena drew 0-0 with Livorno who ended the season in a creditable ninth-place.
