The DAMPE (DArk Matter Particle Explorer) experiment, in orbit since December 17th 2015, is a space mission whose main purpose is the detection of cosmic electrons and photons up to energies of 10 TeV, in order to identify possible evidence of Dark Matter in their spectra. Furthermore it aims to measure the spectra and the elemental composition of the galactic cosmic rays nuclei up to the energy of hundreds of TeV. The proton analysis and the flux with kinetic energy ranging from 50 GeV up to 100 TeV, at the end of two years of data taking, will be presented and discussed.
