Default Turin Public Transport

Seeking info. on ticketing system: there seem to be several 'time-limited'
tickets available according to Turin transport website, incl. a 'Shopping
Ticket' which looks good value.

Has anyone here used one of these, and can confirm if they need to be
validated before each journey (as per Amsterdam trams) or only once?

Any help TIA

Shopping tickets and 24-hour passes nedd to be validated only once (at the
beginning of the first journey.

Single tickets and carnets are a bit tricky: after the first validation
they are valid for unlimited rides within 70 minutes.
After a second validation (within the 70 minutes) you may use the ticket
to complete your journey on the same vehicle even if it takes longer.

Thanks! That's the useful information for which I was looking.
