SABRE is a dark-matter direct detection experiment, based on NaI(Tl) crystals as target material. A primary goal of the experiment is to test the interpretation of the DAMA/LIBRA annual modulation signal. To reach its purpose, SABRE will use an array of high-purity NaI(Tl) crystals into a liquid scintillator active veto system and twin experiments, one in the Northern Hemisphere, at LNGS (Italy), and the other in the Southern Hemisphere, at SUPL (Australia). This presentation will provide an overview of the design and the status of SABRE Proof of Principle (PoP) at LNGS, designed to assess the radio-purity of the crystals and to measure the overall background level.
