Hi Roberto,

 

Yes, you are offtopic… But I will try to give you an answer: there are a lot of Futura versions (since the original in 1927), created by different foundries. The Futura PT you refer to has been designed by Paratype (that's why it is called PT at the end) and the T1 version you use for now is certainly designed by another foundry (maybe Bitstream).

If you want more explanations, you can post on the Adobe type forum.
