Hi Francesco,
The label font and size of 3D labels can be controlled in Preferences (under Favorites menu), category: Background. This controls all 3D labels together -- they can't have different sizes.  By "3D" I mean the labels that move along with the structure.

If you use 2D Labels, you can control the size of each one separately, in the 2D Labels dialog.

I hope this helps,
