Current fixed assets and advance payments


Explanation:
Immobilizzazioni materiali:
- fixed assets
- tangible assets
- plant and machinery

in the case in point fixed assets seems to be fitting the bill more

for acconti to be sure some more context wouldn't hurt...

current fixed assets accounts - from proz glossary


Explanation:
This is the answer I gave for the glossary, as Giovanna points out, and which was one of two alternatives available.
I do recommend you consult the glossary as we have entered a great many accounting terms.
