Hello and welcome to the forum.
I suspect you have either a bad connection to the starter from the ignition switch or an engine earth problem.Try removing the spade connector to the starter solenoid and cleaning the connection on the starter motor.
I'm sure,too,that the key isn't the problem.
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
