I assume there is a typo here and you actually did
Integrate[f1, {x, -2, 2}, {y, -1, 2}]

Look at the integration limits you set for p. They run from -2 to -2 causing the answer to be zero. I assume you meant to have the integration limits set to run from -2 to 2. Making that change results in the same answer as the other methods.
