Good Day,
I am very curious as to what the Model 1856 Bersaglieri rifle looks like. Can one our Italian friends upload a photo or a link to one of the rifle?

A good technique for finding information and images is to search using the original language -- in this case Italian. The term you want is "CARABINA A PERCUSSIONE MOD. 1856 DA BERSAGLIERI." Note that this is a minie carbine, not a rifle. This yields this photo:
