The team announced on Tuesday ahead of its home Grand Prix at Mugello this weekend that Dovizioso, who has been with the team since 2013, will partner reigning world champion Jorge Lorenzo when he moves from Yamaha at the end of the 2016 season.
Dovizioso, who has signed for 2017 and 2018, has made eight podium appearances for Ducati to date. Iannone will leave at the end of the year.
“It's never easy to take a decision like this one,” said Ducati boss Luigi Dall'Igna, “especially when you have two great riders like the two Andreas in your team.”
