In the current age of Gravitational Physics, despite being put to the strictest observational tests,
General Relativity still holds fast as the most successful theory of gravity.
Even its most striking predictions -i.e. black holes and gravitational waves- found further confirmation in the recent results by the Event Horizon
Telescope and LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA collaborations.
As gravitational experiments are expected to steadily grow in number and accuracy over the next decade, it is worth asking whether we could still expect gravity to hide some surprises for us.
In this talk, I will discuss my research journey into strong gravity-in General Relativity and beyond- and present examples of how gravity might still
