Stamp prices depend on weight and price zones. Since America is a price zone no.2, the basic stamp costs 2.30 euro (provided that the letter weights less than 20 grams).
Here you can see the prices table: http://www.vaticanstate.va/content/dam/vaticanstate/documenti/poste_vaticana/estratto-tariffe-postali-2016.pdf (the second table)
The basic price for America (still zone no.2) at Poste Italiane is 10 cents less, 2.20 euro. I don't like to bite the hand that feeds me, but it's true that the national mail service is somewhat inefficient. I received only yesterday a parcel that was shipped on October 18th from Norway...
You can ask "Mi può dare un francobollo base per l'America?" (Could you give me a basic stamp for America?)., or "Mi può dare un francobollo da due euro e trenta?" (Could you give me a 2,30 euro stamp?).
Hope this helps!
