Summary

A low-activity liquid-xenon scintillator is running at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory of INFN using liquid Kr-free xenon enriched at 99.5% in129Xe. The result of adark matter direct search—looking also for the annual modulation effect—is presented. Preliminary exclusion plots both for coherent and spin-dependent coupled WIMPs are evaluated.
