The 30-year-old spent seven years at Juventus, making 319 appearances and winning six consecutive Serie A titles.
AC Milan manager Vincenzo Montella said: "He is a player with international experience. Technically, I think that he and Sergio Ramos are the strongest central defenders in the world. Coaching him is a dream come true."
Bonucci becomes the fourth defender AC Milan have signed this summer following the arrivals of centre-back Mateo Musacchio from Villarreal for £16m, left-back Ricardo Rodriguez from Wolfsburg for £16m and right-back Andrea Conti for £21.4m.
AC Milan have also brought midfielders Franck Kessie, Hakan Calhanoglu and Lucas Biglia, along with forwards Andre Silva and Fabio Borini, in what has been a very busy summer so far in the transfer market.
The Rossoneri are also in talks to sign Andrea Belotti from Torino after missing out on Alvaro Morata and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and have held discussions with Bayern Munich about signing Portuguese midfielder Renato Sanches.
Meanwhile, Italy defender Mattia De Sciglio has moved in the opposite direction as a replacement for Dani Alves at right back for Juventus.
Juventus made the announcement on Thursday that De Sciglio was joining from AC Milan and signed a five-year contract with the Serie A champions.
Alves was released by Juventus in June and subsequently joined Paris Saint-Germain.
Juventus are reportedly paying £10.7m for the 24-year-old De Sciglio, who has 31 caps for Italy.
