But no seriously, did Germany just sorta ask Italy on a date?
To be honest, I just wanted to make a transparency of one of my favourite panels from the strip

Where on earth are you seeing that Italy is the “land of pickpockets”? Are we reading the same translation???
The strip is more of a PSA for tourists to watch their valuables. Italy states it as a warning when people are sightseeing. This is a general warning that tourists receive wherever they go because they are easy to spot and therefore make easy targets. Volume 4 approaches a similar subject in which Italy’s camera is stolen by a pickpocket while he and Germany are sightseeing in Turkey.
Himaruya loves Italy. He started writing Hetalia because of reading about Italy. He’s been to Italy. He’s likely just using the strip to share a warning that he himself had received while traveling. (I get similar warnings from my mother for just traveling across country.) Please don’t take it to mean that he hates Italy.
^This. Property crime (particularly against tourists) is a big issue in Europe in general, not just Italy. I was given the same warning while traveling in GERMANY.
