There is no Himera Cetina culture, unless these cretans migrated to southern italy after Adriatic Cetina
the first Greeks into Italy are corinthian Greeks from not earlier than 740BC .................unless you want to claim Myceneans ( which is another story )
Greeks and people from that part of the world have been coming to Italy, and other places near by since the Neolithic in 6,500 BC, according to archeology. Influences can also be seen throughout the Bronze Age in the local southern Italian cultures. This was before the colonization of Magna Grecia.
The Bell Beakers are a good proxy for influences in Italy north of the Alps. The Italics for example may have come form Bell Beaker culture.
Here's a map by Razib Khan demonstrating this.
