Title: Looking for Axion Dark Matter: from Dwarf Galaxies to Pulsars

Abstract: Axion and Axion-like particles are fascinating dark matter candidates and a great effort has been devoted to their study, both theoretically and experimentally.
In this talk I will discuss two different astrophysical searches. The first one consists in looking with radio telescopes for the spontaneous decay of axion dark matter using different targets as Dwarf Galaxies, Clusters or the Galactic Center. The second one uses the parity violating axion interactions to exploit the extreme precision of pulsar timing measurements and look for oscillations in the polarization angle of the pulsar signal.
