Both sides displayed steady build-up play throughout the first 15 minutes, but it was Fiorentina that looked the more positive team going forward, and they scored their first goal through striker Enrico Chiesa after 18 minutes.
Milan did not have the chances to draw level in the first half and Rossoneri coach Alberto Zaccheroni replaced Zvonimir Boban with Federico Giunti.
The equaliser arrived after 20 minutes of the second half when Ambrosini converted a Giunti cross.
But Fiorentina midfielder Bressan hit Fiorentina's second with 15 minutes left, much to the displeasure of home fans.
Finally Giunti ended his wonderful night firing home a trademark free kick in the last minute.
The two sides will meet again next week for the return match.
