Love Locks

The romantic trend of young lovers attaching padlocks to statues, streetlights, fences, and posts--called Luccheti d’Amore, in Italian--has spread from Asia into Italy and the rest of the continent. Some cities embrace it and others do all they can to remove, barracade, and fine people attempting it, but the locks continue to go up faster than they can be taken down. It seems the trend is here to stay! Lecce, Italy
