The future has one special use that does not translate directly. It is used to
express possibility or probability. This can translate into English in a variety
of ways.
Some possibilities are: must, probably, maybe, could
Ex.

Do you know where Maria is? She didn’t come to class today.
*She must be sick. She could be sick. She is probably sick. Maybe she is
sick.*

That watch must cost an arm and a leg. That watch probably costs an arm
and a leg.
CONDIZIONALE:
The conditional normally translates into English as ‘would do.’
It is very common with verbs such as:
piacere-would like
volere-would like
potere-could
dovere-should
Ex.
Mi piacerebbe andare ma non posso.
Vorrebbe qualcosa da bere?
Potresti aiutarmi?
