In this seminar, I will discuss a few important open problems in 'Fully Developed Turbulence' concerning its most

idealised realisation, i.e. the case of statistically homogeneous and isotropic flows. I will discuss the importance of

inviscid conserved quantities in relation to the most striking statistical properties shown by all turbulent flows:

the growth of small-scales strongly non-Gaussian fluctuations, including the presence of anomalous scaling laws.

By using unconventional numerical methodology, based on a Galerkin decimation of helical Fourier modes,

I will argue that some phenomena characterising homogeneous and isotropic flows might be important also for a

much larger spectrum of applications, including flows with geophysical and astrophysical relevance as for the case

of rotating turbulence and/or conducting fluids.
