White's idea in the Closed Sicilian is to immediately establish a significant influence over d5 with 2.Nc3 followed by the developement of his light bishop in fianchetto.  In addition he is going to create a restricted but solid pawn center (c2-d3-e4) and to start an attack on the King's side.     Black usually replies developing his dark bishop in fianchetto and looking for counterattack chances in the Queen's side.
