Snow chains vs winter tyres

Recently hired an Avis car from Linate to do some business near Milan, nowhere near the mountains basically, and was suprised to see the car came with winter tyres. This has never happened to me before and got me thinking (think I may have to have a lie down!)....does anyone know if it is still madatory to carry chains if you have winter tyres?

Yes they are heavy but if you can get them in your handluggage and that is not weighed then I have got away with it a couple of times. Just makes it more cost effective if you can either use or sell them on at home!
