Friday's False Friend

factory v. fattoria

In English, a factory is a building where products are made industrially.

Ex) Cars are built in a factory.

In Italian, an apparently similar word is fattoria, but that is the land where food is grown-a farm. Use fabbrica as the correct Italian word choice.

Italian) Le macchine sono costruite in una fabbrica.
