Djokovic, winner in Madrid Open last weekend, saved two match points in the second set tie-break before winning through 4-6, 7-6 (8/6), 6-4 in just over three hours serving an ace on his first match point.
The 31-year-old next plays Argentine Diego Schwartzman for a place in the final as he targets a fifth Italian Open title and first since 2015.
Schwartzman eliminated Japanese sixth seed Kei Nishikori 6-4, 6-2 to reach the semi-finals.
