The highly-respected official upset Torino for awarding a dubious penalty in the game and Cimminelli believes Collina's performance cost his side three valuable points.
"I'm not a political man and I can say things how they really are," said Cimminelli. "So I can tell you that the penalty Collina awarded for Bologna wasn't right.
"But there is more, Collina was wrong also on another occasion, when we were winning and we suffered the draw."
Cimminelli is also unhappy with Torino general manager Sandro Mazzola about the lack of moves in the transfer market and promised there would be new signings before the transfer window closes.
"I'm not satisfied because I remember that someone at the beginning of the season gave me the guarantee that Torino would have been able to play a tranquil season," said Cimminelli.
"And after this match I'm less optimistic, but it's only a personal conviction. It's sure that it's necessary to start winning and it's evident the team fear winning.
"Now between Tuesday and Wedensday we'll buy other players and their arrivals will strengthen us and give us the will to win."
Torino are waiting to hear if their offer for Marco Marchionni will be accepted by Parma.
"Marchionni ? It doesn't depend on us," said Cimminelli. "We have the will to buy him but until when (Parma general manager) Arrigo Sacchi decides, we can't do anything."
