Title: Magnetars fireworks in the Time Domain and Multimessenger universe


In this colloquium, we delve into the dynamic phenomena exhibited by magnetars, from their rapid and intense bursts to their potential role as multimessenger sources. We will explore the latest observational and theoretical advancements that allow us to unravel the mysteries of these cosmic powerhouses. The discussion will extend to the necessity of future missions geared towards enhancing our observational capabilities, aiming to capture the details of magnetars’ fast-transient activity.
