Inspired by cult novels, a love crazed trend is sweeping visitors to Rome's most ancient bridge: hanging a padlock on a certain lamppost as a declaration of undying love and throwing away the key into the Tiber river.
Squabbles have ensued amongst city officials since some concerns have been raised about damage being done to the historic Milvian Bridge site - a site famous for its battles.
