Montescudo is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Rimini in the Italian region Emilia-Romagna, located about 120 kilometres (75 mi) southeast of Bologna and about 15 kilometres (9 mi) south of Rimini.
Montescudo is most likely of Etruscan origin. In the Roman era it was a station of the military mail service from Rimini to Rome. In 1209 it was conquered by Emperor Otto I, and later was under the Republic of Venice. In the late Middle Ages, through a series of bloody struggles, it was contended by the House of Malatesta of Rimini and by the Dukes of Urbino. In 1509 it was ceded by the Republic of Venice to the Papal States.
