Girolamo Lucino was a 16th century Italian fencing master. Little is known about his life, though he does name his master as Gioseppe Martinegro. In 1589, he published a treatise on fencing entitled Dialogo del uso della spada ("Dialogue of Girolamo Lucino of Casalmaggiore on the use of the sword"), which presents itself as an expansion and clarification of the system of Camillo Agrippa. He also spends considerable time pointing out the errors that he sees in the treatise of Giacomo di Grassi.
