Cannot say that I have ever seen that term (obliterate) used before for validation. I have seen many, many signs referencing "convalidare" which translated into English means "to validate". In fact, the back of a Trenitalia ticket makes reference to "convalida del bigietto." It does go on to state "convalidare all obliteratrice i biglietti." So you are correct in the name of the machine. However, you don't want to "obliterate it", which means to get rid of it by any means. That would kind of defeat the purpose.

In any case, put the ticket into the yellow box (on a train or on a bus!)
