The time stamps are always in UTC. I don't think you can change this without breaking everything. Generally, you should think in UTC when interpreting the file names, and if you are processing them with automated scripts, you should write your script accordingly.

If it's more convenient to have the date match the local date, a simple workaround would be to do your full backups at 02:00 instead.

    sorry if this is a duplicate, but I haven't been able to find anything
    about this problem.

    I'm configuring a backup script in order to execute an incremental
backup every two hours and a full backup every day, starting at midnight.

    My problem derives from the fact that duplicity creates the archives
    using the current date reduced by two hours, so for example when I
    execute a backup at midnight, the archives will be saved as
    "duplicity...full...day-before:2200...". Could you give me some tip in
    order to fix this or to find a workaround please?
