fattoria and fabbrica

in one of the exercises " fattoria" is the answer to "factory", which of course is incorrect. When I type in "farm" as the answer it marks it as incorrect. Franco

DL fell victim to one of the most typical false friends (fattoria = "farm", but "factory" = fabbrica). ;-)

Do you remember what activity it was? I looked through all of the sentences with "fattoria" in the system, and none of them accept "factory" in the translation, just "farm" and "farmhouse."
