How to store Dried Hot/Sweet Soppressata

I bought some hot and sweet soppressata/ dry Italian sausage from Emily's Pork Store in Williamsburg, now I'm curious how I can store this at home. Should I refrigerate it in it's original paper or leave out at room temp in a zip lock bag?

Yes, refrigerate. This is a softer, not fully cured, sausage. In fact,depending on who is making it, it can be almost spreadable in texture.
