unchain my heart

"In the novel of F. Moccia ‘I want you’ (2006), now a real teen cult, the two protagonists promise eternal love closing a lock on third streetlight Ponte Milvio and launching the key in river Tiber.
The ritual has become one of the new symbols of the city.
The padlocks of love became hundreds, then thousands, were even stolen! Fortunately the police managed to regain the love of Rome and put padlocks on the streetlight.
Unfortunately the streetlight one day fell apart because locks weighed too much!
The mayor sorry for it has established chains of love instead of the lamp to give definitive accommodation to padlocks."
