    Everything is obviously not ok, even though it "looks" ok to you.  So get a wiring diagram and a 12 volt test light or a voltmeter and start tracing the circuit.  Then you may find the problem.

    you've run out of blinker fluid.

    Seriously, check all the connections,check the globes aren't blown, get a cheap multimeter (under $10) learn how to use it & check everything again.

    Italian wiring? Good luck with that!

    Ever PM your wiring? PM stands for preventatively maintain, as in remove all the fairings, wipe off the crud and take a careful look at your harness and all of the ground connections. The fundamental concept of preventative maintenance is to MAINTAIN the unit so repair is unnecessary. Just sayin'.

    Replace the switch.  It is shot.

    Probably the flasher itself. Might be bad switch or loose power lead to it. Buy  or borrow a continuity tester and test lite. Note, use test light with power on. Use CT only with power off. Might need 6 volt units with a scooter, IDK.

    Occasionally. those glass 3AG type fuses break inside the cap from vibration.  Look fine but a CT  or test light will show they are open.  IDK if your scoot uses these or the  new A-type plastic ones 

    Wires may "look" good, but,  only testing them  with some meter or test light and then  taking connectors and  lugs off and Looking at them will verify if connection made or a displaced pin or bad crimp/connection.

    Might be able to take out flasher and slap it hard , then see if it works. I've  prised open old stuck  Chevy flashers, busted the contacts free, filed them, then adjusted  tension 'till I got a safe 3 flashes per second. Then glued cover back on. Fixed...

    EDIT: If bulbs bad, it would still probably flash on one side, but slowly (your warning of a bad bulb.) All 4 plus indicator going At Once?--Play the Lotto.

    You can make yourself a circuit continuity tester. One with a buzzer or a light and then you work from switch to light via relay etc.

    My bet would be on a poor earth/ground.
