I saw the next characters in at least 3 stories (so you could say they
are 'recurring'):

Brigitta MacBridge, Uncle Scrooge's "fiancee" (she appeared in one of the
last Gladstone Uncle $crooge comics);
Atomino Bip-Bip, an enlarged atom who lived with Mickey for a while.

A lot of Italian stories are reprinted in Holland (and Germany, and Sweden,
and..) in pocket books.

Little chance that Dell/Gold Key or Whitman ever reprinted any Italian
comic. Gladstone reprinted a few, but I don't think Trudy was in one of them.
(Check out our Gladstone list for candidates!)
