Try selecting all 3 inner parts for A letters and convert them into a Compound path - Object Menu on top > Compound Path > Make (Ctrl+8).
Then select text outline for "ATTALIA" letters and compounded path for all 3 'holes' and hit 'exclude' button in a Pathfinder menu:



Set fill to whatever you want and apply 3D extrude filter
