The Azzurri reached the final of the competition by registering a 2-1 semi-final victory over Germany, whom they face in a friendly international at the San Siro on Friday.
"I am half-German, so this is never a game like the others for me," he told reporters. "If I look back to the Euros, I can say more than a team we were a family, as we were like a single body.
"I hope we will be able to recreate that fantastic atmosphere at the World Cup, which is the most important thing within a team. We have quality and now Giuseppe Rossi is returning to his level too. We always believed in him and waited for his return.
Italy qualified for the World Cup as Group B winners in the European zone.
