They are a semi-regular visitor in LGG, but indeed can't remember the last visit to BRU.
My last time to see an An-12 in BRU was on 28 October 2017. UR-CGW of Ukraine Air Alliance departed just minutes after the last commercial flight of an SN Avro out of BRU departed on the very same day.

Small startup to form in Northern Italy

There might have been rumors about a small startup forming in Northern Italy - and they seem to gain in substance: The small regional airport of Bolzano (LIPB/BZO) hasn't seen scheduled flights since 2015.
