After being routed in the second set, Italy showed some life in the third, taking a 9-6 lead before the Brazilians put the match away, delighting the thousands of their compatriots in the stands at Earls Court.
Brazil, which won gold eight years ago in Athens and the silver at the 2008 Games in Beijing, prevailed over the Italians by three sets to none (25-21, 25-12, 25-21).
For Brazil it will be their third successive final and an opportunity to reclaim the title.
Brazil would become just the second nation to sweep the competition in the men's and women's categories after the former Soviet Union did it in Mexico in 1968 and Moscow in 1980.
Russia overcame underdogs Bulgaria 3-1 in a testing four-set encounter.
Russia have gone 32 years since they won men's volleyball gold and have lost two finals in the intervening years.
Brazil beat Russia in the group stage to even the overall Olympic record between the teams at 4-4. But with a gold medal on the line, neither team expects that preliminary result to matter.
