Chiellini dedicated Juve's two-legged victory over Tottenham Hotspur to Astori the previous evening.
"We dedicate the win to him. He is on our minds on this day," BBC Sport quotes him as saying.
"I cried many times. He was a fantastic player. It was very difficult during the match because we had to think of the game and the outcome, and it's not easy. But he's always in our heart."
The crowd chanted "There's only one captain" while Astori's coffin was carried from the church and the Florence government has declared a day of mourning.
