pasticceria and panetteria

I don't quite understand why pasticceria is listed as a bakery when in it is more of a sweet shop/pastry shop.

A panetteria is a bakery

Yeah, a pastry shop IS a bakery, as far as I know...

for the record, "sweat shop" has quite a different meaning than "sweet shop" in English. (Probably just a typo, if so, forgive me.)

In Italian a "pasticceria" (not to be confused with "pastificio" which sells artisanal pasta) is a shop where pastries and other kinds of sweets are sold, whereas a "panetteria" sells bread. Quite often in Italy you can find shops that are in fact both a "pasticceria" and a "panetteria" and therefore sell both kinds of products!

Another term for a bread/sweet shop is FORNO. In Greve there is a wonderful bakery named Forno (oven) IMO their best item is the cantucci. If one can buy it while still warm....well, it's to die for!
