I look for a while in internet what means "reconciliation" for Argo CD but I do not find any result.

In situation like this I tend to visit the project and dig in some code. For this particular case this is the PR that the metric was introduced in - https://github.com/argoproj/argo-cd/pull/1184. You can go from there and do some more research.

argocd_app_reconcile_count is metric related to Argo CD Application Controller, basically each time a reconcile action is executed the count is incremented.

Reconcile may broadly mean: "state refresh/re-check".
