Our history


Francesco Fumero, engineer graduated at Politecnico di Torino in 1895, fouded “Studio Consulenza Brevetti Ing. F.E. Fumero”, by taking over an firm active in technical, engineering advice and existing since 1887, in 1912, just before the first World War, at the end of Belle Epoque, when one of the first kolossal, Quo Vadis, had been produced and the first exposition of Kandinskji works took place in Berlin.

Francesco, after a short career as teacher of electrotechnics in Turin and as director of the magazine L’elettrotecnica, was among the first Italians wanting a firm able to help enterprises to protect their ideas and inventions.

The firm Fumero, owned by Carlo Faggioni’s (who became partner in 1937) family since 1945, when the founder died, still preserves the philosophy which inspired the activity: a small sized organisation, with a high professional level and a high specific attention, so as to be able to give each Client the best solutions ensuring the development of enterprises, because of optimised protection and management of ideas and innovations.

The basics of the profession of patent and trade mark attorney –profesion which had neither a school nor a a qualifying examination until the eighties- formed and spreaded in Italy also from this firm.

Carlo Faggioni, who was member of "Collegio Italiano dei Consulenti in Proprietà Industriale" since 1941, FICPI member since 1941, AIPPI member since 1945, led the firm –until his death in 1965 – according to guidelines set by his predecessor and founding partner, whose name was kept in his activity.
