Life in Turin: Love Locks

You’ve seen them before, perhaps on the Ponte Milvio in Rome or Ponte del Accademia in Venice. Now, they’ve made their way into Turin.

Love Padlocks or Love Locks have been a symbol of ones eternal love for quite some time although it is unknown how long ago it started. They began to pop up in Europe sometime in the early 2000’s. Thanks to Federico Moccia’s book: I Want You, lovers flocked to Rome’s Ponte Milvio to proclaim their love.

From Paris to Serbia to Taiwan to Uruguay, love reigns on trees, bridges and lamp posts. 

Will you confess your everlasting love on your visit to Turin?





*These Love Locks are located at the Po River near Piazza Vittorio Veneto.
