Artist's Description

Love Padlocks – Cinque Terre

SOLD a Small Photographic Print (271mm x 203mm) – Lustre finish

For Valentine’s Day – February 14th.

Love padlocks are a custom by which sweethearts affix padlocks to a fence or similar public fixture to symbolize their love.

Perhaps the most famous example in Italy takes place on the Via Dell’Amore, a path connecting the towns of Manarola and Riomaggiore in the Cinque Terre. The pathway’s legend holds that it was a meeting place for lovers from the two towns, and is now a favourite site for tourists to place their locks and throw the keys into the sea.

Cinque Terre, Italian Riviera in the Liguria region of Italy.
