Travelling with Trekking Poles

I am partially handicapped and often use trekking poles to get around. I am planning a 4-week trip to Italy next summer and don't want to check any baggage. I am sure that it will be an issue if I try to take trekking poles on a plane. Do you know of any way that I can get a special allowance to take my trekking poles on the plane?
