Active galactic nuclei (AGN) represent one of the most extreme phenomena in the Universe. They occur when the supermassive black hole (SMBH)  at the center of galaxies accretes material and emits large amounts of radiation across the electromagnetic spectrum, from Γ-rays to radio frequencies, sometimes exceeding the combined luminosity of all the stars in the host galaxy.  Since their discovery in the 60´s AGN have received high interest in the astrophysical community, first seen as exotic objects and now recognized as major players in the evolution of galaxies and also recently as standard candles for cosmology.
