The Pauli Exclusion Principle (PEP) represents a fundamental principle of modern physics and it is extremely important to test the possible limits of its validity. The VIP-2 experiment, at the underground LNGS laboratory of INFN, searches for X-rays by electrons from copper atomic transitions that are prohibited by the PEP: it is realized by fresh electrons introduced in a copper target by circulating a current. We present and discuss the first results obtained with the VIP-2 experiment, with respect to the final results obtained by the previous VIP experiment.
