Born in Novara in 1967, Ivan Epicoco in 1991 graduated in Musicology from the School of Paleography and Musical Philology in Cremona with a thesis dedicated to the evolution of the guitar and its performance practice.
Subsequently, he devoted himself to the study of Piedmontese, Cremonese and Bolognese violin making, both with regard to string instruments and the guitar.
His professional contribution to the publishing project and to the coordination of the publishing house's activities is of fundamental importance.
In 1996 he began his journalistic career at RAI, working first at the Culture and Entertainment editorial office of Tg2 and later moving to the TGR editorial office in Bolzano.
Since 1999 he has been at the TGR of Emilia-Romagna, of which he is currently chief editor.
