Michael you gave me the solution! Or at least you gave me the solution for my simple example. The following works!

\version "2.21.0"
pa = {<< {e'1~}\\{c'1~}>>}
{ \pa \pa } 

Now I have to try in my real file code but I don't see any reason why it should not work....

Thank you!

Hi Gianmaria,
Interesting, for me running 2.19.80 the first example does not compile, either.

Yes, I vaguely remember that version 2.21 manage differently ties/variable. And probably that was the reason why I decided to use it :)
Was there a recent change regarding post-event handling?

No idea about post-event handling. 

The problem is that the tie is not a separate _expression_ that you could  concatenate with other
musical expressions like
Thank you Michael for the explanations!
What are you trying to achieve? Your second example does not make much sense to me,
because if you want to tie two equally long notes you would normally use
chords [....]

You're right Michael; to tie two equally long notes I would use a chord. But my code was just a very simple example. 

Here it is the real situation. My phrase is in a variable. The end of the phrase is the following:

and that should be connected once with this  


and once with this 

Probably it doesn't exist a simple solution and the best would to keep the last measure outside the variable.
Thank you Michael!!

P.S. My apologies if I included the images in the email and not attached it it's for clarity. Please let me know if you lilypond email users always prefer to attach images at the end of the messages.
