These are the official taxi fares in Rome (Summer 2012):

Amount on meter when you get in the taxi:
3.00 euro - workdays between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.
4.50 euro - Sundays and holidays
6.50 euro - nights from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

While moving:
Fare class 1 ("T1)" per kilometer when going faster than 20 kph: 1.10 euro per kilometer
Fare class 2 ("T2)" per kilometer when going faster than 20 kph: 1.30 euro per kilometer
Fare class 3 ("T3)" per kilometer when going faster than 20 kph: 1.60 euro per kilometer
Fare while sitting still (i.e., going less than 20 kph): 27.00 euro per HOUR
NOTE: The meaning of the fare classes has changed. Instead of being geographic, they are now based on distance. T1 applies at the start of the trip until the meter reads 11.00 euro, then the meter switches to T2 until the meter reads 13.00 euro at which point the meter switches to T3.

There is a 10% discount from the fare on the meter for
1. trips directly to a hospital in Rome
2. trips of women by themselves between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
3. trips by young people leaving discoteques on Friday and Saturday nights (really)

Baggage:
First bag is free. Subsequent bags larger than 35 cm by 25 cm by 50 cm are 1 euro each.***check this***

To estimate the fare for a real trip, go to www.viamichelin.com, use the ROUTES tab to compute the distance from start to end, add in the initial meter amount based on time of day, multiply the distance traveled by the fare class, add in something for extra luggage, then add in some more for stops and starts...note that, of course, the driver may not go the way that viamichelin.com predicts, and he may do so for good reason, since Rome is full of places that "you can't get there from here".
