Resumen: CUPID-0 is the first pilot experiment of CUPID, a next-generation project for the measurement of neutrinoless double beta decay (0νDBD) with scintillating bolometers. The detector, consisting of 24 enriched and 2 natural ZnSe crystals, has been taking data at Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso from June 2017 to December 2018, collecting a 82Se exposure of 5.29  kg×yr. In this Letter we present the phase-I results in the search for 0νDBD. We demonstrate that the technology implemented by CUPID-0 allows us to reach the lowest background for calorimetric experiments: (3.5+1.0−0.9)×10−3  counts/(keV kg yr). Monitoring 3.88×1025 82Se nuclei×yr we reach a 90% credible interval median sensitivity of T0ν1/2>5.0×1024  yr and set the most stringent limit on the half-life of 82Se 0νDBD: T0ν1/2>3.5×1024  yr (90% credible interval), corresponding to mββ<(311–638)  meV depending on the nuclear matrix element calculations
