  1. @Leeb "THE PLACE OF THE TURKİSH INDEPENDENCE WAR IN THE AMERICAN PRESS (1918-1923)", by PROF. BÜLENT BİLMEZ (İstanbul Bilgi University) "As the Italians were against this occupation from the beginning, and started "secretly" helping the Kemalists, this conflict among the Allied Powers, and the Italian support for the Kemalists were reported regularly by the American press." I did not find any battle between the Turkish and Italian forces during the Turkish War of Independence but I found that the two countries had very good relations and that Italy defended often turkish civilians from greek attacks.
  2. @Kerems2434 During the Turkish War of Independence, Italy was against the occupation of Turkey, because it hated the Allied forces (after the First World War Italy did not obtain Dalmatia and the city of Rijeka, where, at the time, it had many Italians lived). As the Italians were against this occupation from the beginning, and started "secretly" helping the Kemalists, this conflict among the Allied Powers, and the Italian support for the Kemalists were reported regularly by the American press. The Italian troops also protected the Turkish civilians, who lived in the areas occupied by the Italian army, from the Greek troops and accepted the Turkish refugees who had to flee the regions invaded by the Greek army. In July 1921 Italy began to peacefully withdraw its troops from southwestern Anatolia. So don't consider Italy as an enemy state on the map, at least as a neutral state with Turkey.
