    Welcome to Italian.SE! Are you trying to say "from July to September"?

    How come you have a whole sentence with just two prepositions missing? Is that homework, by any chance?

Month names want the preposizione articolata only if qualified: nel prossimo giugno or nel giugno del 1985.

Otherwise the preposition has to be simple: andrò a Parigi in settembre. Here settembre means the next September; it could mean every September with the present tense: vado a Parigi in settembre, depending on the context, can mean that I'll go to Paris the next September or that I usually go to Paris every September.

In order to speak about a time interval, we use da… a…. Again, the present tense can mean either that Leonardo usually works at Treviso from June to September or that he'll go there the next June till September.
