Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Mayor of London Sadiq Khan are among the political invitees which also include President of Italy Sergio Mattarella and Undersecretary of State for Sport, Valentina Vezzali.
The star-studded guest list also includes a host of famous names from the world of football, some of whom are more intriguing than others.
Former Three Lions captain David Beckham and record goal scorer Wayne Rooney will have pride of place among England's selected invitees.
So to will Geoff Hurst, who scored a hat-trick as England beat West Germany 4-2 to win the World Cup in 1966 – the country's last major tournament triumph.
Italian football will be represented by Alessandro Nesta, Gianluca Zambrotta and former AC Milan, Juventus and England boss Fabio Capello.
One of the more eyebrow-raising names on the guest list is ex-Tottenham and Republic of Ireland striker Robbie Keane. It is believed he will be at the match as a UEFA technical observer.
Mauricio Pochettino is also expected to be present, while Tom Cruise and Kate Moss are listed among the invitees from the world of celebrity.
Cruise was in London on Saturday for the Wimbledon women's singles final and has even sent the England team a message ahead of Sunday's showdown with Italy.
"Obviously we have had ex-players and people get in touch," Three Lions captain Harry Kane told the BBC.
"We actually had Tom Cruise get in touch yesterday evening, you get everyone who loves football."
