Bourdieu? Gramsci!

When I was a student (ah, those were the days!) I dug up a reference
in Gramsci's sociological work that pretty much developed Pierre
Bourdieu's notion of habitus and doxa well before Bourdieu himself
did (in fact Bourdieu was probably still in Pampers at the time).
Since then of course my life has changed and I'm far too busy
explaining Sesame Street to my son to spare any time for frivolities
such as Gramsci.

The question is, can anyone point me to that reference I once had?
