Lucchetti dell’amore on Lake Como
Cari amici, are you head over heels in love and slightly romantic? Then you will certainly know the nice old usage of “Lucchetti dell’amore”. It goes very well with Valentine’s Day and is practiced by many twosomes on Lake Como. For those who do not know it, please follow the instructions: You make a romantic date on the lakeside to install the so-called “love locks” – “Lucchetti dell’amore” on steely riparian balustrades, trellis or even bike racks. You write the initials and the date on the lock and possibly stick a photo. Then fix it to the railing and throw the key into the water. Now this lock will hang forever on the railing. Of course, the ritual has to be sealed with a long kiss! This fashion symbolizes “amore eterno” – eternal and true love.
I wish all lovers on Lake Como and to the world that their “Lucchetti dell’amore” and their love may never rust.
Buon San Valentino!
Tanti saluti e a presto
Rosa Maria Lamberti
