Ash Wednesday 2011 in Rome

This may seem like a dumb question. But in the US Ash Wednesday is March 9th this year. In the Rick Steve's Italy 2011 it did not mention Ash Wednesday and somewhere else I saw that in Rome it was in mid February. I am concerned because we are arriving in Rome on March 10th and want to avoid the traffic. Any enlightenment on the subject would be helpful!

Ash Wednesday shouldn't effect traffic at all.
