The Basilica Fulvia was a basilica built in ancient Rome. According to Livy (40.51), the censors M. Aemilius Lepidus and M. Fulvius Nobilior (after whom it was named) had it built in 179 BC. It may be that there had been a previous building existing on the site from 210 BC which was incorporated (Plaut. Capt. 815, Curc. 472). In 78 BC, the consul M. Aemilius Lepidus incorporated the building into the Basilica Aemilia (Plin. Nat. Hist. 35.13) and it was renamed the Basilica Fulvia et Aemilia or sometimes simply the Basilica Aemilia.
The Remains 
The remains of the Basilica Aemilia The Basilica Aemilia was first built in 179 BCE by the censors M. Aemilius Lepidus and M. Fulvius Nobilior. In the following centuries it was actively maintained and improved by the gens Aemilia. The first complete reconstruction took place in the years between 55 BCE and 34 BCE, which incorporated into the building the series of shops, the tabernae novae, that stood in front of the basilica. The building was destroyed by a fire in 14 BCE and was rebuild by Augustus. A last restoration happened after a fire in 410 CE, following the sacking of the town by the Visigoths of Alaric.
