Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But you are proposing to join countries of very unequal sizes. Greece would dominate a Greece - Cyprus - Malta union, and Italy would dominate an Italy - Greece union. Politically, that is unsustainable.

And Cyprus and Malta are only in the EU as a sop to the UK to compensate the addition of Germany's sphere of influence in 2004.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
