Explanation: Hi, "reato patrimoniale/reato contro il patrimonio" is a crime against property (Garzanti and also De Franchis), so I would think that this is organised crime against property.
Hope this helps.
Means of fighting organised crime through investigation of accumulated wealth
Explanation: I think it is talking about the method of fighting organised crime through a thorough investigation of wealth.
Traditionally mafia was fought by investigation of criminal acts (e.g., through the direct investigation of a mafia killing the police would try to discover the people behind the crime), Falcone, the judge who was murdered by the mafia, started to fight mafia by investigating, instead, accumulated wealth. In this manner he ordered the banks in sicily to render information on all bank savings over a certain amount. He therefore started a new method of investigation which gave very good results (for which he was murdered).
I think the phrase up for translation is probably a paragraph heading on the means of fighting organised crime by investigating accumulated wealth.
