Locks of love, or lucchetti dell’amore, are the padlocks fixed by loving couples in Italy. These couples will attach a lockon the Ponte de Vechio and then throw the key into the Arno River. Apparently, officials in Florence have tried to stop the practice... There is even a sign that says the fine for attaching locks to the railing is 160 euros. It doesn't seem to be working.
Especially when the vendor right on the bridge is selling cheap padlocks and replicas of the David. I wonder if Snookie and the Situation have attached thier Lucchetti?
