3C 454.3 is a prominent Flat Spectrum Radio Quasar that in recent years attracted considerable attention because of its variable high-energy emissions. In this paper we focus on the exceptional flaring activity of 3C 454.3 that was detected by AGILE and by Fermi-LAT in November, 2010. In the light of the time varying data ranging from the radio, optical, X-ray up to GeV γ-ray bands, we discuss a theoretical framework addressing all data in their overall evolution. For two weeks the source has…
