Why are the seasonal variations minimum in the equatorial regions?

The seasons result from the Earth's axis being tilted to its orbital plane; it deviates by an angle of approximately 23.5 degrees. Thus, at any given time during summer or winter, one part of the planet is more directly exposed to the rays of the Sun (see Fig. 1). This exposure alternates as the Earth revolves in its orbit. Therefore, At any given time, regardless of season, the northern and southern hemispheres experience opposite seasons.
For this quiz, I will give you a description of one of the regions/landmark of Italy, and you will tell me which region/landmark I am talking about. I recommend this quiz only for people who really know Italian culture and geography well. Buona Fortuna!
