Italy Train Strikes 13/07/23

I have train travel booked in Italy on the 13/07 (Interlaken to Milan via Domodossola). However I’ve just discovered there are national rail strikes planned in Italy for that day. The Domodossola - Milan train is still bookable on the Trenitalia site - does this mean it will still run, or is it likely to be cancelled last minute? 

Alternatively I’m considering booking a train that goes direct from Switzerland to Milan - does anyone know if these sorts of strikes affect inbound international services? 

Thanks in advance!

This page (in Italian only) gives details of all the trains that are guaranteed to run on strike days.

Please have a look at the link Al provided : https://www.trenitalia.com/it/informazioni/treni_garantiti_incasodisciopero.html

There is a PDF with the trains that are guaranteed to run. If your train isn’t there, still start your journey as planned and see what happens in Domodossola (border point). You may have to change to a regional train, wait some time there (and enjoy a coffee and ice cream) or nothing may happen.

Trains should restart at around 3pm
