Resum

The main observational problem for testing accretion disk models lies in the inability to resolve the emission regions of quasars, since no astronomical method allows us to direct imaging their central engine. In this talk I will review how gravitational microlensing provides a natural telescope to zoom in on in the regions closest to the SMBH and its implications
