The 29-year-old only joined Atletico last year from Bayern Munich and scored 20 goals in 43 games for the Spanish team.
He has agreed a four-year deal with the Champions League finalists, who said the fee could rise to €21m.
“I like Juventus and I like the city [Turin]. I hope I will be happy here. I will fight for my new team,” he said.
It is the third time in four years Mandzukic has joined a side just after they lost the Champions League final, following his 2012 move to Bayern and last summer’s move to Atletico.
Carlos Tevez, their top scorer last season with 20 Serie A strikes, has been linked with a move away from the Italian champions.
Argentine legend Diego Maradona said recently he could go to Boca Juniors.
