Vinci, Errani's doubles partner, beat Spaniard Estrella Cabeza Candela 5-7, 6-2, 6-2 to reach her first Palermo final.
The second-seeded Vinci recovered from a slow start to cruise through the second set.
In the fifth game of the final set, she broke at love after a double-fault from Candela. Vinci went on to win the next three games and the match.
