What are all these padlocks on bridges

All over Italy on bridges we found these knots of padlocks. My friend Dave over at "picks and poems" had written a poem in answer to what these are a few months ago.

Keep Makin' Art!

Hi Carl, came over from Kate Hanley's. I've just come back from Paris and Florence (where I think that photo was taken). They are indeed lover's pledges. I put one there for my son and his fiance. I think it started in Paris but can't be sure, rather nice tradition I think.

Hi Welcome and thanks for stopping by. These locks were on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. You are right nice idea.
