Vincenzo Gonzaga (1634 – 28 April 1714) was a Duke of Guastalla. Vincenzo was the son of Andrea Gonzaga, Count of San Paolo, and grandson of Ferrante II Gonzaga, Duke of Guastalla.
After a childless first marriage, he married Maria Vittoria Gonzaga (1659–1707), the youngest daughter of his cousin, Duke Ferrante III Gonzaga of Guastalla.

When Duke Ferrante III of Guastalla died in 1678 without a male heir, Guastalla was ruled by Ferdinando Carlo, Duke of Mantua, who had married Anna Isabella Gonzaga, Duke Ferrante III's oldest daughter.
Vincenzo became Duke of Guastalla in 1692.

Vincenzo and Maria Vittoria had three children :

Vincenzo Gonzaga inherited in 1707 Bozzolo and Pomponesco, and in 1710 Sabbioneta.
