Experimental and theoretical efforts are being devoted to the study of observables that can shed light on the properties of the nuclear symmetry energy. We present our new results on the excitation energy  and polarizability of the Isovector Giant Quadrupole Resonance (IVGQR), which has been the object of new experimental investigation. We also present our theoretical analysis on the parity violating asymmetry at the kinematics of the Lead Radius Experiment (PREx ) and highlight its relation with the density dependence of the symmetry energy .
