Giardini La Mortella
Giardini La Mortella is a garden on the island of Ischia, Italy. It was created by Susana Walton, wife of the celebrated composer Sir William Walton, starting in the 1950s as the main residence for the couple. In 1956 Lady Walton asked the famous landscape architect Russell Page to provide a design for the layout of the garden that would include the dramatic volcanic rocks.
The design of the garden was conceived taking advantage of the suggestive natural landscape with its openings towards the Mediterranean Sea. Throughout the world garden lovers know and appreciate Lady Walton’s work and passion which produced this enchanted garden.
