Naldi is a Swiss who can be defined as a serial entrepreneur. In addition to the Swiss Creative Lab and the upcoming Imagination, he created the Edelberg brand, whose product line includes pens and watches. He also owns ventures like the St'Art gallery in Geneva and collaborates with brands like Tiret and Gerald Charles.
We spoke to Naldi, who grew up in Ticino, a Swiss Italian-speaking canton, just a few days from the start of his pop-up show in Geneva, an event held in parallel with the Geneva Watch Days, but started a few days earlier, from 24-29 August.
Naldi intends that his Pop-Up Watch Show will become a permanent event at the St'Art gallery, bringing together not only watch brands, but also exhibitions of modern art.
Imagination is the first watchmaking event to have its date confirmed in 2021, from the 1st to the 7th of February, a great demonstration of Naldi's optimism and confidence, which Relógios & Relógios is proud to share announcing a strategic partnership.
