This is almost certainly your CentOS terminal type and/or keyboard configuration. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with CentOS (in fact, this is the first time I've heard of it!), and have no idea how to change it's behavior.

Good morning,
we used for more than 7 years tn5250 (version 0.16.5-1), with Italian
keyboard, on an old RedHat7.3 without any problems.
Now we moved to CentOS5.5 and with its default tn5250 installation
(version 0.17.3-6) we are not able anymore to send F>12 (I mean keys
from F13 to F23).
We tried with calling
loadkeys -d
before tn5250
or with
tn5250 +underscores env.TERM=IBM-3477-FC hostname
but it still doesn't work.
We've already looked at the us map file and read the tn5250-HOWTO.pdf
(we didn't create our own map yet).
It's odd that with a minor release change (from 0.16 to 0.17) tn5250
behaves so differently and probably we are missing something.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
