Vatican city should be added, it didn't exist as a country until 1929, therefore that piece of land was in Italy before.

That was the first one I entered. The Vatican was cast free by Mussolini and he certainly didn't have a say in jack squat in anything other than just how quickly to say "yes sir" during WW1.

What do you mean with occupied during WWI? During WWI, Italy occupied Albania - that's basically it! - but definitively never occupied French Tunisia. I guess you messed up WW1 and WW2.

I don't know what the quizmaker meant, but the first two columns are in alphabetical order, so the headers must be wrong.

Italian troops were supporting spanish fascist rebels in the civil war (1936-1939) but not invading Spain or claiming any territory.

Weirdly I read an article saying Liberia and Ethiopia were never colonised but then saying Ethiopia was an Italian colony during 1936-41. I guess they meant not a colony prior to WW1 (when other African countries were being grabbed by Europeans), but it's just a little confusing. This quiz seems to be right though.

Ethiopia is frequently considered to have been 'occupied' and never actually 'colonized' by Italy, therefore Ethiopia was never colonized. This is because Italy never had the time to actually impose any cultural changes etc. as the local inhabitants kept rebelling. At least so I have understood.

What part of China was ever occupied by Italy? Never heard of that. But part of Egypt was, from the border up to El Alamein and Italian troops on the Eastern Front occupied places in modern-day Ukraine and Russia. Albania wasn't occupied during WW2, it was occupied in 1939, yes, but before war broke out, so you should put it in the 'colonies' column like Ethiopia.
