Unexplored outflows in nearby low luminosity AGNs: the case of NGC 1052

NGC1052 is considered the prototype of AGN-LINERs, an AGN family at low-luminosity for which, so far, the role of outflows in their evolution has been studied the less. Thanks to MUSE and MEGARA IFS-cubes we found that the stars are distributed in a dynamically hot disc whereas the ionised gas is detected mostly in the polar direction up to 3.3 kpc. We found evidences evidence of an ionised gas outflow (jet-powered) propagating in a cocoon of gas with enhanced turbulence and triggering the onset of kpc-scale buoyant bubbles. The hints of the presence of a neutral gas outflow are weak.
