Elliptical galaxies are one of the most characteristic objects we can find in the sky. In order to unveil their properties, such as their structure or chemical composition, one must study their spectral emission. In fact they seem to behave rather differently when observed with different eyes. This is because their light is mainly brought by two different components: optical radiation arises from its stars, while the X emission is primarly due to a halo of extremely hot gas in which ellipticals seem to be embedded. After a brief classification, the two main processes linked to these phenomena will be described, together with the informations we can collect thanks to them. Eventually, we will take a quick look at the other regions of the electromagnetic spectrum.
