The Argentina Under-20 international has joined on a season-long loan deal with the view to a permanent move.
A number of clubs had been linked with Iturbe, but Verona have won the race for his signature.
The 20-year-old had a spell at River Plate earlier this year before returning to Porto, but the Portuguese club have decided to loan him out again.
The signing of Iturbe will come as a boost to Verona as they look to consolidate themselves in Serie A following their promotion from Serie B last season.
