Housing guide? (Bologna)

Hey all,

Is there something of a guide for finding housing for new arrivals in Italy here? I will be moving to Italy in Jan/Feb and have a million little questions, specifically about renting:

Recommendations for good/reputable search engines for housing?
Rental contracts in italy, are they typically of a fixed term, or open ended?
What is typically included in the rental payments? Heating and/or rubbish collection for example? (like in Germany)
Are there fees/taxes which need to be paid to the local council upon moving in?

Any other things to watch out for?

Cheers

Tim
