There must be such a sign however...

A lot of this is moot however. Trenitalia is obligated to make it easy for all passengers to obtain tickets. If I arrive at a station, and it is not imediately obvious how an where I can get a ticket Trenitalia is in violation of a charter it has signed itself.

Haha, naive question. Travelers are invited to buy beverages in the shopping center the station has been transformed to a couple of years ago. We are in 2015, not 1955!

The basin you refer to is an ash tray for *cough* smokers.

There are/were however old cast iron fountains further down the platforms painted in dark green. If I well remember they even had an additional low bassin for pets. I don't know if they still work or if they haven't been removed by now ... surely some hygienic or security measure does not permit any more such lovely and useful installations nowadays. For sure they disturb business owners of plastic bottle beverage vending machines that work perfectly 24h on 24 365days in a year, therefore water fountains in train stations are usually "broken".
But maybe Milano Centrale is an exception ... :-)

Taormina is a major tourist point in the island, and the views from the railway are stunning, but the station is very poorly connected with the town.

It's because train station is on sea level and the topography of Toarmina is exceptionally vertiginous! +300 meter directly from the sea...
But for tourist there are funnivia, bus and taxis.

The stub line to Vigna Clara in Rome should reopen by the end of the year. This line was planned as a new line linking the railways north of Rome, but operated only for 8 days during the football championship in 1990. A second station (in tunnel, unlike the other), Olimpico-Farnesina, was temprarily built as it was near a stadium. This station was quickly built paving one track in the tunnel and using the other to stop trains, so it couldn't be reopened now, as the tunnel would have to be enlarged to built a regular station. The stub might be prolonged to reach the railways on the eastern side of the city in the future, but only one station (Vigna Clara) would be opened for now, and accessible only from the western side.
