Globular clusters are among the oldest and brightest structures in the Universe, and are therefore witnesses of processes from the early up to the present-day Universe. In turn, they play a major role in the benchmark for stellar evolution theory and they are used to constrain the assembly histories of galaxies. Over the last decades, several pieces of ground-breaking observational evidence were accumulated pointing out the presence of multiple stellar populations with different chemical compositions in every individual globular cluster studied in detail so far. I will review the effects of chemical features typical of these multiple populations on the evolution of stars and I will show their impact on the properties of their hosting cluster. Finally, I will briefly discuss their effect at larger scales on external galaxies.
