Italian: "Lui sta andando" vs "Lui va"?

ItalianFilter: So I'm studying Italian via Rosetta Stone, and I'm noticing a huge emphasis on stare + a gerund (like andando, tirando, spingendo, etc). How common is this in written or spoken Italian, and what is the difference between it and plain present tense? Also, I've never seen Rosetta use 'ed' in place of 'e' when it precedes a word starting with a vowel ("Un bambino e una bambina" vs "Un bambino ed una bambina"). Are there rules for "ed"? Is it basically optional, but something people use in speech?

Instructional materials for Italian

Instructional materials for Italian My new favorite bits of culture -- Calvino, Antonioni, and Fellini -- are making me want to learn Italian. Now, I've studied French for a while, I've had a year of Portuguese, and I'm a linguistics major, so I don't need (much) hand-holding. I.e., I'm looking for (a) textbook(s) with the usual exercises, gradual introduction of vocab, and short readings, all without trying to make the explainations "easier" and therefore less straightforward and complete.

I want to learn Italian.

After recently getting the opera and pop-era bug and finding that I can sound half-decent singing it, I really want to learn Italian so I don't have to phonetically remember the lyrcis of the likes of "O sole mio". Any resources to help me do this cheap (on the Web preferably)? $100 or less?
