  -> I thought soffio ... udibile sul focolaio deals with the sounds audible upon outflow from mitral valve, hence mitral discharge. The partial quote begins the sentence that describes the area where this auscultation is performed.

disagree  Joseph Tein: Your reference(s) should at least show that the term you suggest as the translation exists (in the target language) and is used in the asker's context. Here, your Italian reference simply repeats the Italian term ... how does that help?

mitral area

Here "focolaio" simply means "area".

Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is characterised by an early systolic click, with or without an early systolic murmur audible at the mitral area.

Focolaio mitralico: si trova sul quarto-quinto spazio intercostale all’altezza della linea emiclaveare di sinistra (rappresenta l’itto della punta del cuore)

The mitral area is located at or near the fifth intercostal space just medial to the left midclavicular line. This area, directly over the left ventricle... is where sounds of the mitral valve and left ventricle are heard best.
