They really don't.  Pannetone is made from enriched bread dough that is 
filled with candied fruit and nuts.  It is similar to Weinachtstollen or 
Dresdener Stollen.  Pampepato and panforte are spiced candied fuit and nuts 
in a matrix of honey and flour (or breadcrumbs) similar to 16th Century 
gingerbread and lebkuchen.  I haven't compared the recipes, but pampepato 
may have more matrix then panforte.
