Luca Turilli (born 5 March 1972) is an Italian musician (primarily a guitarist) and composer. He is one of the founders of the symphonic power metal band Rhapsody of Fire. He also worked on a trilogy of solo albums as Luca Turilli. He has now formed a second side band, named Luca Turilli's Dreamquest, alongside Dominique Leurquin, which released its first album, Lost Horizons, in the summer of 2006.

On every Rhapsody of Fire albums, Luca is the only lyricist and composes all the music with the keyboardist, Alex Staropoli (except for Il Canto del Vento written, lyrics and music, by the vocalist, Fabio Lione) and plays most of the lead guitars. He composes all the music for both his solo projects. He plays guitars on his solo trilogy and keyboards with Luca Turilli's Dreamquest featuring Dominique Leurquin as the guitarist.

Turilli was born in Trieste, Venezia Giulia. Due to the influence of his father, he became interested in classical music and learned to play piano and guitar. In 1993 he founded the band Thundercross, which was renamed Rhapsody after releasing the first demo, and renamed once again to Rhapsody of Fire for copyright reasons in 2006. Turilli says that if he didn't play music, he would like to be a video game designer.
