Alessandro Staropoli (born 9th January, 1970 in Trieste, Italy) is the keyboard player and one of the co-founders of the Italian symphonic metal band Rhapsody Of Fire. He does the orchestral arrangements in all the band's songs. Alex started with Rhapsody Of Fire in 1993, when he met Luca Turilli in a mind control course. When Alex was a child he was mainly interested in nature, mountains, forests and lakes. At the age of eight he got his first piano and began to study its basics. At the age of fourteen he bought his first electric guitar. After founding Rhapsody Of Fire (previously called Thundercross, then Rhapsody) he bought a Korg 01/W pro keyboard. He started working in his first solo album, however, beyond this statement nothing else has been announced. Image File history File links AlexStaropoli. ...
