The Curia, first Roman senate house was built by Tullus Hostilius at the northwest corner of the Forum square. The Curia which stands today was begun by Julius Caesar in 44 B.C. He aligned this new Curia with its surrounding structures. The interior has three steps for the senator’s seats on either side of the vast hall. A speaker’s podium was located at the end opposite of the door. The Curia Julia was dedicated by Augustus in 29 B.C.
