It shouldn't take very long (less than a month) to get a UK licence converted to an Italian one. You may well need a 'medical' - which means you tick a lot of boxes and submit to an easy eye test, but your local ACI office will have a tame medic onside one day a fortnight, at least. It'll cost you about €50 for five minutes of the medic's time.
This does depend on whether your UK licence is your first licence: if, perchance, you have 'converted' it before (maybe as an Aussie...) they'll knock you back.
Best advice is to consult your local ACI office, make sure your licence is convertible, and (maybe do this quickly, before Brexit happens). Then - God knows!
I have an Italian licence, converted from a UK licence, so if I'm eventually forced by this mad May person to relocate myself to the UK, I have this ghastly notion that the UK is going to say, haha, that licence has already been 'converted' so 'you' need to take a UK driving test!!
So, think it through. I promise you it is much easier to blag the Italian polstrad than the employees of the private company entitled (by the privatisation crazy UK govts) to stress you out. Those folk are hugely rude and unpleasant, the polstrad are sweethearts!
