Train ticket validation?

I've heard loads of stuff about having to validate train tickets in Europe and I'm clueless to how it works, can anyone please tell me? I'm going to Italy and Switzerland if anyone has specific information to those countries?

    Hiya,

    It sounds complicated but the system is actually very simple. All you have to do is put your ticket into one of the machines which are on every platform before you get on the train. This shows that you've used your ticket, so you can't keep reusing it!

    The Italian machine looks like this...

    And the Swiss one...

    Hope that makes sense!
