Both "al fine" e "alla fine" are correct italian. In the every day
language you say "Alla fine" (for example: "Alla fine della giornata" =
"At the end of the day"), but in the musical language you say
"Da capo al fine". As most of the musical terms, it's old fashoned: in
the common language "fine" means something like "aim".
