The Italian league has unveiled a new fixture list of games that will be played when football resumes.
Serie A is set to resume on June 20 with teams allowed to resume training weeks ago.
Two games will be played every week for the rest of the season which is set to end on August 2.
The league confirmed that the season will restart on June 20 and run till August 2 with games played almost every single day.
Only five days will be without football during which the period will be used to complete the remaining 12 rounds of matches, plus four games outstanding – all in around six weeks.
The league has been on a three month hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic that hit the world.
Most weekend match days will run from Saturday to Monday and midweek rounds from Tuesday to Thursday.
Kick-off times will be 6.30pm or 8.45pm local time, although there will be some 4.15pm starts despite concerns from the players’ union about possible high temperatures.
The league will resume with the four matches postponed from previous rounds. Torino and Parma get the ball rolling on June 20 followed by Hellas Verona v Cagliari.
Third-placed Inter Milan host Sampdoria the following evening while Atalanta entertain Sassuolo.
The first full match day will be on June 22 with three games, including leaders Juventus at Bologna. Second-placed Lazio, who are one point off the top, will play their first game two days later with a tricky visit to fourth-placed Atalanta.
The resumption of the Serie A season will be preceded by the Coppa Italia semi-final second legs, possibly on June 13, with the final on June 17.
