The Theater of Marcellus was begun in 44 BC by Julius Caesar, who wanted to create a larger and and more grand theater than the one built by the recently defeated Pompey. He appropriated lands for it and started construction. He was assassinated shortly after the project began. The project was not taken up again until Emperor Augustus decided to complete it in 22 BC. He privately funded the project. The theater, though incomplete, opened in 17 BC. It went through a number of renovations, and various uses, but portions are still standing today with the top floors used as apartments.
