Love padlocks in Rome being removed

For the last six years, romantics all over the world have fixed “love padlocks” to the Ponte Milvio Bridge, which extends across the Tiber River in northern Rome, Italy.
However, professionals moving to Italy who were keen to check out this tourist attraction may find upon their arrival that the bridge has lost its passionate appeal, the BBC reported.
Officials in Rome have begun to remove the padlocks, which are said to have first originated courtesy of an Italian novel Ho Voglia di Te (I Want You).
In the book, by Federico Moccia, two lovers fix an engraved padlock to the very same bridge and then toss a key into the river.
The idea is that they represent two lovers locking their hearts together forever.
When the book was released in 2006, it soon inspired many lovers to declare their affection for one another in this very novel way, and soon enough, the bridge had become adorned with plenty of special padlocks.
However, the city council has said that it has been forced to end this tradition, claiming that rust from the chained padlocks is harming the very structure of the bridge, making them a safety hazard.
The international removals company Cadogan Tate can help British professionals relocate their belongings abroad.
