In the United States Love Locks can be seen at...

St. George, Utah, USA

Couples would usually affix the lock to the metal barrier on the viewing deck overlooking the ocean, usually with their names on it or even important dates.[15] A variation of this is the use of plastic bag tags[16] that are sometimes purchased at the nearby souvenir shop when a conventional padlock is unavailable.

In Russia it is done not simply by lovers but during the wedding. Look at a bridge in Moscow, near Kremlin where there are THOUSANDS of such padlocks:

PS. When I lived in Puglia, in Bari I visited your town several times. It's really wonderful. Please pass my best greetings to it :)
