The Ponte Milvio is a nice stone bridge in Roma, Italy, dating back to the year 109 BCE. It spans the river Tevere and became well know because of the battle of Milvio in 312 CE. It is one of the first locations were couples attached love locks to a bridge – something that became later common practice throughout Europe.
For me this is quite stupid as love should never feel like being locked-in. But the Italians love to attach locks marked with their names here and throw the keys with a “per sempre” (forever) into river Tevere. In 2006 a lantern couldn’t hold the weight anymore – therefore the city of Roma provided chains an the bridge where the locks could be attached.
