The command \mathgreekitalic can only be used in math mode, when you want a italic alpha
in text mode you need a font which has greek characters (e.g. Gentium).

\definetypeface [mainface] [rm] [serif] [gentium] [default]
\definetypeface [mainface] [mm] [math]  [xits]    [default]


α {\it α} \quad \m{\alpha \mathgreekupright \alpha \mathgreekitalic \alpha}
