There was a similar custom in Napoli. When a new enterprise opened, a "pazzariello" dressed in a funny costume (usually a Napoleon felucca, eapulettes, striped leggings and colored vest) would come perform a lucky-attracting song or incantation.
watch this movie clip for an example

I've heard that in the poorest sections of town this still happens!
