I missed this before: it's incorrect. It should be "Riguardo a" in this 
context "circa" means "about" but relative to numbers, like "circa 3" 
is "more or less 3"

Admittedly, to italian speakers, that translation is aweful. But 
italian doesn't have that particular expression as "about" in a 
referencing context, so you have to come up with a composed expression 
like the above.
