Dear Peter,

thanks a lot for your patience.


this is the code:

import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
from datetime import datetime


#input:
start_date = np.array(["2012-01-01 06:00",'2013-01-01 06:00','2014-01-01 06:00'])
end_date   = np.array(["2013-01-01 05:00",'2014-01-01 05:00','2015-01-01 05:00'])
yearfolder = np.array(['2012','2013','2014'])


for ii in range(0, 1):
   df = pd.read_csv('dati.csv',delimiter=',',header=0,parse_dates=True,na_values=-999)
   df['datatime'] = df['datatime'].map(lambda x: datetime.strptime(str(x), "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M"))
   mask = (df['datatime'] > start_date[ii]) & (df['datatime'] <=  end_date[ii])
   df = df.loc[mask]



and here a piece of my dati.csv file
