In this article I explore the spatial dimension of Antonio Gramsci's thinking, which possesses an innovative methodological approach to spatial analysis, within what can be termed an ethnographical or anthropological approach. Such an approach engages in an analysis of an overall form of life in each spatial context, in order to overcome the absence of statistical data that can adequately describe the socio-economic processes Gramsci is attempting to characterize. Furthermore, Gramsci's category of organic intellectual also helps bridging the gap between hegemonic forces and spatio-ethnographic context, thus helping to understand the permanent reproduction and reconfiguration of the economy and society.
