"An invention must be

total, extreme, and simple

at the same time"

Fabio Perini, founder of Faper Group, 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.


It was his revolutionary sail handling system which led to the foundation of Perini Navi in the early 80’s, world leader in designing, creating and delivering large sailing yachts. It is his patents that inspire Futura, technology and innovation leader of Consumer and Away from Home converting lines for the tissue industry.


Today, Fabio Perini’s instilled ideas and enthusiasm are what lead the technological innovation activities carried out by the expert teams at the dedicated research and development centers of the Faper Group companies.


He was nominated ‘Cavaliere del Lavoro’ in 1991.
