If you use SBB.CH.EN and you want to order your ticket online, at one point you will see "Discount Switzerland" with a dropdown list.
If you don't see the Swiss Half Fare Card there, just choose Half-Fare Travelcard.
If you don't see the Swiss Saver Pass there, just choose Swiss Pass (or GA, 2nd cl.in case you don't see Swiss Pass either)
GA (General Abo) and Half-Fare Travelcard are used by Swiss residents.
The main thing ordering your tickets here is the indication whether you are entitled to travelling in Switzerland for half fare or for free.
So, I don't think you have to book these tickets elsewhere.
Ordering your Swiss Half Fare Card or Pass Swiss Saver Pass can be done online here:SwissHalf Fare CardSwissSaver Pass
I hope this answers your question and I wish you a very pleasant stay in Italy and Switzerland.
