After a short introduction to hydrodynamic turbulence, I will present the scaling problem in the statistical theory of fully developed turbulence. Then I will describe the main features of turbulence in the Rayleigh-Benard convective cell. Finally I will discuss some recent results on the scaling properties of turbulence, that develop in this kind of system, obtained by numerical simulations performed on the APEmille parallel computers.
