How long will this trip be in total? The 8 days are only the travel days, right? Do you indeed expect to only use one cable car during your entire stay?
As far as I can see now, I don't see a need for an 8-day Swiss Travel Pass Flex. Only day 1, 4 and 8 seem to be longer trips within Switzerland. A 3-day Swiss Travel Pass Flex Combi includes 3 days of free traveling and a 50% discount on shorter trips in between the free travel days. That should work out much cheaper, but perhaps I don't understand your plan correctly. Pass details are here. Please see here for an explanation on how to do the math, and the timetable page explains all about how to find prices.
I don't know that much about Italy, nor do I know similar websites about Italy, but I do know that point to point tickets are much cheaper there than in Switzerland. So traveling there without a pass may work for you. I have not heard of Gerra before. Be sure to check its spelling before checking ticket fares. Unlike Switzerland, long distance trains in Italy do require seat reservations, so you may want to book these when you purchase your pass. Please see here for that. Alternatively, there's a Eurail Pass for Italy: raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/eurail-italy-pass/index.html.
I hope this was useful!
