codicefiscale Module Documentation

A quick example

>>> import datetime
>>> from codicefiscale import build
>>> build('Rocca', 'Emanuele', datetime.datetime(1983, 11, 18), 'M', 'D969')

Module Contents

build(surname, name, birthday, sex, municipality) -> string

Computes the fiscal code for the given person data.

eg: build(‘Rocca’, ‘Emanuele’, datetime.datetime(1983, 11, 18), ‘M’, ‘D969’)
-> RCCMNL83S18D969H

control_code(input_string) -> int

Computes the control code for the given input_string string. The expected input_string is the first 15 characters of a fiscal code.

eg: control_code(‘RCCMNL83S18D969’) -> ‘H’

get_birthday(code) -> string

The birthday of the person whose fiscal code is ‘code’, in the format DD-MM-YY.

Unfortunately it’s not possible to guess the four digit birth year, given that the Italian fiscal code uses only the last two digits (1983 -> 83). Therefore, this function returns a string and not a datetime object.

eg: birthday(‘RCCMNL83S18D969H’) -> 18-11-83

get_sex(code) -> string

The sex of the person whose fiscal code is ‘code’.

eg: sex(‘RCCMNL83S18D969H’) -> ‘M’
sex(‘CNTCHR83T41D969D’) -> ‘F’

isvalid(code) -> bool

This function checks if the given fiscal code is syntactically valid.

eg: isvalid(‘RCCMNL83S18D969H’) -> True
isvalid(‘RCCMNL83S18D969’) -> False
