Episode

On the volcanic island of Ischia – in the gulf of Naples – the la Mortella domain’s tropical vegetation is surprisingly lively. Paths have been carved in volcanic rock and are flanked by Mediterranean essences.

They lead to the garden’s top – which has a splendid view on the city of Forio and the sea. The London composer Sir William Walton settled here with his wife Suzana at the end of the Second World War – in what was only a volcanic stone quarry. Lady Suzana had always dreamed of creating a garden. With the help of Russel Page – a renowned British landscaper – she thus created an original garden where William Walton could compose his music at peace, far from the London tumult.
