Do you know if it is possible to get a seat reservation for a train less than 3 hours away from departure? In this case I’m refering to italian trains. Maybe it is possible to do it physically at the train station?

When you're in Italy, the best way to book is at the rail station anyway, because Interrail charges an extra 2 EUR per seat. Trains in Italy can be booked at the station until departure time, as long as the train has not been fully booked.
That means also when the train makes a very long trip and you board on the way-f.e. the train goes Bari-along Adriatic coast to Milano and you board in Bologna, some 7 hours after its departure. Hence REServed seats are never marked. IC only cost 3-4 eur/seat, but Freccia---- is much more expensive-these are HiSpeed treni=alta velocita
