The train station appears to be unmanned at least some of the time with no automated ticket machines. Rather unreasonably, this is not seen as an excuse not to have a ticket - a note in Italian only informs you that they must be purchased from the garage in Via Gaetano Salvemini, a good ten minutes walk away.
Some of the services listed on the station timetable are actually bus services, so check for the little picture of a bus.
