What was Sicily doing during WWII and what side were they on?
I'm making a Hetalia fan character that is Sicily, but I need to know what Sicily was like during WWII

Before or After the Allies landed there? Sicily belongs to Italy (but don't ever tell a Native Sicilian that) and Italy was part of the Axis so prior to the landings they were technically part of said Axis. However, the Sicilian Mafia and Sicilian Partisans were instrumental in helping the Allies before, during and after the invasion and most Sicilians were anti-Fascist, anti- Mussolini and anti-Hitler.
The Sicilian Mafia (or any large Criminal Empire) needed/needs Corruption and Capitalism to thrive (that is why they did/do so well in the US) and Fascism would have destroyed them.Source(s): History Books, History Channel and USN(ret) with three 6 month deployments to NAS Sigonella Sicily

It is a part of Italy so it was on the Axis side, and was occupied by Germans.
