Italy were whitewashed 4-0 in the 2012 edition of the tournament, but Bonucci is "very confident" that this result will not be repeated at Wembley.
He told Evening Standard via Sports Mole:
"We will be playing at their home but we are not afraid of that. We are looking forward to going to Wembley on Sunday, even though we will have a mostly English crowd.
"But being there will be additional motivation for us because we want to achieve something historical and will do everything we can to play a great match, then we will see what the final result will be."
Italy failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia but have since improved immensely under former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini and head into this weekend's final unbeaten in their last 33 international matches.
