Taxes are dependent on income - the more you earn, the higher the taxes. If you're an Italian citizen, you can move anywhere within the EU (including the UK) without requiring a visa. Property costs can be looked at on the RightMove website - it's not a cheap area. State school in the UK is free for residents until 18. You go to junior school til 11, then take GCSEs between 14-16 and A-levels or equivalent qualifications between 16-18. After that you can go to university.

Oxford is a gorgeous city, but housing is very expensive. You could consider one of the nearby towns such as Witney or Abingdon to live, housing there is cheaper and they have good transport links. Avoid Didcot, I didn't like it there at all. We rented a house near Charlbury, the rent was half the cost of a similar house in Oxford. Of places to live in Britain, Oxfordshire is lovely - much more well-mannered, a strong sense of community, beautiful countryside and a lot of cultural events going on. With regard to taxation, one advantage over Italy is that you have a tax-free allowance on your income - see http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/rates/it.htm. You can get an idea of income tax and National Insurance payments on your estimated income here: http://www.uktaxcalculators.co.uk/ There are a lot of 'stealth' taxes, especially if you drink or smoke, a packet of cigarettes costs about 9 euros as they are so heavily taxed. Many Britons hop over to France or Belgium to stock up on these, the port of Dover is only 3 hours from Oxford. You will find the bureaucracy much simpler in Britain, but the health service is worse than Italy's. The quality of food is worse too unless you get your fruit and veg from markets.
