Padlocks on the Milvian Bridge.

A series of images which rather tell their own story really, the historically significant Milvian Bridge is home to a wonderful little tradition, where lovers mark their affection by adding their names to a padlock, affixing it to the posts on the bridge, before flinging the keys into the Tiber – a lovely sentiment, and in the right light, an amazing glittering scene of commitments. We’ll let the images speak for themselves from here.

    • Indeed, it was a great thing to stumble across. I understand the tradition is fairly wide spread on bridges over a number of European cities – hopefully time will allow in the future to track down some more examples.
