When CVS writes an RCS file, it creates the file with a name like that. 
Once the file has been written successfully, it renames it to the
regular name (pippo.doc,v).  That keeps other processes from seeing
partially-written files and guarantees that the old version of the file
is still available if something goes wrong creating the new version.
