Ethiopia got colonialized by Italy during 1936,but it had stoped the Italians during the scramble of Africa 40 years before.During ww2 emperor haile selassie asked the british to help him get back his throne,so the british invaded the east African colonies of Italy,and so in 1941 Ethiopia was back in haile selassies hands.But during these few short years Italy never really built anything in Ethiopia,only a few roads,and culturally there is an ethiopian plate which is similar to lasagna,so it would look like it was never colonized,but after ww2 most European countries helped Ethiopia modernize itself.
