The Nerazzurri had lost three home games in a row, but Tommaso Rocchi's late scuffed shot proved enough for the 1-0 victory.
"This win means a lot during this emergency period that we're in," the Coach told the official Inter website.
"It's something the lads showed to everyone and to our President, who always gives us a boost. It was also for the fans, who are always there for us.
"I think Inter played a strong first half. We knew we would pay for it a bit after half-time, while Parma were able to send on fresh legs. But we managed to get the result."
