There are taxes, but also you'll have to pay to have car made acceptable in Italy (ie headlights, turn signals, etc.) The VAT last time I did this was based on the current value of the car. You will probably use a freight forwarder. They do this all the time and will be able to tell you exactly how much. You may want to try rockitcargo.com but any forwarder call let you know. Also be sure to buy maritime insurance as international shipping laws make you liable if the ship sinks. weird, huh?
