Title: VLT observations of the two Fermi pulsars PSR J1357$-$6429 and PSR J1048$-$5832

Optical observations of pulsars are crucial to studying the neutron star properties from the structure and composition of the interior to the properties and geometry of the magnetosphere. Historically, X and γ-ray observations have paved the way to pulsar optical identifications. Furthermore, the launch of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope opened new perspectives in the optical-to-γ-ray studies of neutron stars with the detection of more than 80 γ-ray pulsars.
