After a (necessarily) short introduction about why and how General Relativity, assumed as the established consensus gravity theory, should be modified/extended, we will discuss the constraints we obtained for a particular class of Extended Theory of Gravity (technically defined as “Beyond Horndeski” and “Vainshtein-breaking” theory), using data from clusters of galaxies, both from X-ray observations and from gravitational lensing events.
