Last season 2017-18, Italian Serie A started 1 week before the usual end of August date due to World Cup taking place this summer and Italia FA decided to end the season earlier to make sure Italian national team get enough time to prepare for the big event (not that it mattered). This season however since there are no international events in 2019, Serie A season will start on its usual dates of third weekend in August 2018 and will be finishing on Sunday, 19 May 2019.
