Originario di San Benedetto del Tronto (AP), classe 1984, si trasferisce a Perugia per gli studi filosofici, conseguendo la laurea magistrale nel 2010. Durante il percorso di studi universitari inizia a prendere confidenza con i piccoli palchi del capoluogo umbro fino a quando decide di formare La Madonna di MezzaStrada, band post rock cantautorale con la quale pubblicherà 3 album: Cantiche (2012 Videoradio); Lebenswelt (2014 La Fame Dischi); Crono (2017 La Fame Dischi). Nel 2019 apre a Perugia, insieme a Daniele Rotella, La Cura Dischi, uno studio di registrazione attualmente attivo che vede la produzione musicale di numerosi lavori. Proprio in questo contesto nasce il nuovo progetto solista Vercingetorige, progetto che vede finalmente la luce il 15 marzo 2022 per La cura dischi. Le canzoni sono state scritte e registrate negli ultimi 4 anni. La musica di Vercingetorige ruota interamente intorno ai testi che sono il germe e il fuoco di tutto il lavoro. Estremamente sperimentale, la musica di Vercingetorige è un ibrido di elettronica e musica suonata che rompe con la tradizione di una forma canzone convenzionale. La musica è sempre funzionale alle parole e su queste si adagia avvolgendole come a proteggerle. Ripanucci attualmente vive ad Atene dove lavora come insegnante; diviso tra Perugia e la capitale ellenica aspetta di preparare un live che possa, nel prossimo autunno, rendere fede a quest'ultimo lavoro.
