I am trying my hand at making a carbon 10x135 thru-bolt, will report back if it works.
Starting with the rear wheel, in case it breaks. If it passes testing, then I'll try a front one.

Basically a 10mm OD carbon tube, 2mm wall thickness, with correct layup for longitudinal stress,
and aluminum inserts of an allen head on one side, and threads for the nut on the other.
Galvanic aspect of the metal/carbon mitigated by an epoxy contact.

Fairwheel sells some KCNC and Far and Near 135mm skewers, so if you can't import them to Italy, you can probably source them locally. In all honesty, though, I would go with the RWS skewers. I use them on my mountain and CX bikes, and I rarely get any brake rub - they're just that good!

@FIJIGabe - it probably helps to read the thread. KCNC/Far and Near do not sell what is being spoken about eg:

Received today, DT Swiss RWS 10x135: 68g. Pretty big too.
About this kind of axle, it's not just about the size it's also about the contact area between the cup and the frame, two times bigger with the 10x135, there is a thread on MTBR forum about this with pictures (can't find it again).

FWIW, that's a pic of a Hadley thru-bolt.

Should be easy to make . Not sure how much experience you have with carbon though .

On mine there won't be any actual metal-to-carbon, which can cause a corrosion (white powder-like) over time with most carbon layups.

That's with direct contact . The epoxy resin will separate the two materials but that's obvious . I have made seatposts, a saddle, several chainrings and bonded my stem/bar and saddle/seatpost . The only thing I have made with metal inserts is a carbon oval chainring but there hasn't been any issues . You should be fine .
