Actually it was more the British who pushed the Italians out than the Ethiopians themselves considering they only were able to do it with British help. I now know Ethiopia wasn't colonized by the Italians but it certainly was controlled by them for a bit and they certainly didn't avoid control, just colonization. In fact the Ethiopian Emperor surrendered when the Italians forced them into submission when they poisoned their crops amongst other things.
