Futura is the brainchild of Fabio Perini, the man who changed the world of converting.

// History & leadership
Futura is part of Faper Group, a holding company of machinery manufacturers dedicated to the world of tissue and hygienic products. It later expanded into the world of superyachts and healthcare systems.
All of Faper Group’s activities are based on two simple concepts: Made in Italy for Niche Markets.
Fabio Perini was born near Lucca into a family of paper entrepreneurs. At the age of 17 he had already patented his first device for process automation in paper manufacturing. This was the first idea, and the first patent, in a long series of technological breakthroughs that in just a short while would redefine the concept of tissue converting. Since then he has dedicated his career to the creation of new industrial models and technology innovation.
He was nominated ‘Cavaliere del Lavoro’ in 1991.
