Garibaldi and the Risorgimento

Two scenes from the panorama:

A life and times of Garibaldi plus a fabulous panorama at Brown University. From the site:
'Moving' panoramas displayed one scene at a time. Attached to rollers, the paintings could be unrolled slowly as a narrator described each vignette to the audience. Markers attached to the paintings would serve as guides for the persons cranking the piece as well as the narrator. An interval would have been announced upon reaching the end of side one, in order for the staff to turn the panorama around for displaying the second side.
This sounds fabulous.
