segun el Diccionario de Regionalismos....


Explanation:
"facturas" son toda clase de bollos en Argentina (all kinds of buns/rolls); pan de Viena is "milk bread" and pan dulce I really don't know although it could be "sweet bread" if you make sure and keep a space between the 2 words, otherwise it means something totally different ;o)

the shop sells all kind of rolls, including bridge rolls and panettone


Explanation:
I come from Argentina but have lived in the USA and live now in Europe, so I think I can help you with this. As the first answer says, "factura" is a term used for all kinds of buns and rolls in Argentina, including croissants, brioches, and similar ones. Some Danish rolls in the States are alike some of our "facturas". "Pan de viena" is known as "medianoches" in Spain and is a small soft piece of bread used for sandwiches which I've read translated as "bridge rolls" and "pan dulce" is a Xmas cake of Italian origin, with nuts, raisins and candied fruit, known in Italy as "panettone". Under the Italian name I've seen it in stores in the USA and in many countries in Europe, so I believe "panettone" is the proper international name.
¡Buena suerte! (and taste "panettone" next Xmas, I think you'll like it!)
