Lucidio Sentimenti (also known as Sentimenti IV; 1 July 1920 – 28 November 2014) was an Italian footballer from Bomporto in the Province of Modena, who played as a goalkeeper. His nickname, Sentimenti IV, comes from the fact that he is the fourth of five brothers – Ennio (I), Arnaldo (II), Vittorio (III) and Primo (V) - all of whom but the eldest were also professional footballers. Only Lucidio played for the Italian national side.

A former out-field player, who was capable of playing in any position, Sentimenti was known for being an accurate penalty-kick taker, and was known to be one of the first goalscoring goalkeepers. Nicknamed "Cochi", he was a reliable, tenacious and composed goalkeeper, who was known for his intelligence and speed when rushing off his line to anticipate his opponents, as well as his ability to come out and collect crosses or punch the ball clear, despite his small stature. An excellent shot-stopper, he was also known for his agility, handling, and positional sense, although at times he was caught out from distance throughout his career.
