If you look very carefully at old instruments with flat-faced end blocks you will find that the block faces are never parallel to each other. Like so much of Cemonese violin design the little things are often subtly different from what you think.
In this case I can only assume this avoidance of parallel faces is intended to prevent standing waves being set-up.
