Love Lockdown on Ponte Milvio
Padlocks on the Ponte Milvio, one of the oldest bridges in Rome. What’s the story behind the locks? Basically it’s to pledge your eternal love to your boyfriend/girlfriend and is taken from a best selling book turned film based in Rome. There’s good articles about the sources both from the New York Times and from a Roman himself on Spotted by Locals.
Call me a cynic but it’s seems kind of silly to me, though the locks did make for some nice shots in the late afternoon sun. All I could think of when thinking about a title for the blog was Kanye West’s song Love Lockdown. Seemed appropriate.
