We study the optimal transportation mapping $\nabla \Phi : \mathbb{R}^d \mapsto \mathbb{R}^d$ pushing forward a probability measure $\mu = e^{-V} \ dx$ onto another probability measure $\nu = e^{-W} \ dx$. Following a classical approach of E. Calabi we introduce the Riemannian metric $g = D^2 \Phi$ on $\mathbb{R}^d$ and study spectral properties of the metric-measure space $M=(\mathbb{R}^d, g, \mu)$. We prove, in particular, that $M$ admits a non-negative Bakry-{\'E}mery tensor provided both $V$ and $W$ are convex. If the target measure $\nu$ is the Lebesgue measure on a convex set $\Omega$ and $\mu$ is log-concave we prove that $M$ is a $CD(K,N)$ space. Applications of these results include some global dimension-free a priori estimates of $\| D^2 \Phi\|$. With the help of comparison techniques on Riemannian manifolds and probabilistic concentration arguments we proof some diameter estimates for $M$.
