I have searched a lot but I have not found a way to change the font of the dates below every horizontal line of every section.

I use moderncv classic theme with fontspec and fontawesome.

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

You simply need to redefine hintfont. As you are using fontspec, the following:

\newfontfamily\bio[Ligatures=TeX]{Linux Biolinum}% this only works if you are using fontspec under Xe- or LuaLaTex

would for example make the dates be printed using Linux Biolinum in small, regular weight and italic.
