I'm looking for an API to call where I can pass my string, for instance "Milan", and recive back the position in terms of latiture and longitude. Do you have this kind of API?

Yes, regular address lookup as well as reverse geocoding is provided by Nominatim. Take a look at the examples and also keep the usage policy in mind. If you have to do bulk address lookups then better install your own Nominatim instance.
