Conference

Q. Where and when is it happening?

PyCon Italia will be held from the 25th to the 28th of May 2023 in Florence, Italy at the Grand Hotel Mediterraneo.

You can check the How to find us page to find out more.

Q. What is the language of the conference?

The official language of the conference is English.

Announcements, keynotes, opening/closing, and more will be done in English. This is because we are an international conference joined by hundreds of people from around the world, and making sure everyone can attend and enjoy Python with us is essential!

If you speak Italian or want to listen to a session in Italian, fear not! We try and have at least one talk in Italian for each slot, so you will always have something to enjoy!

If you have any questions or problems, our staff is more than happy to help! We speak both languages (some even more!)
