We study the curvature of the moduli space M_g of curves of genus g with the Siegel metric induced by the period map. We give an explicit formula for the holomorphic sectional curvature of M_g along a Schiffer variation at a point P on the curve X, in terms of the holomorphic sectional curvature of A_g and the second Gaussian map. Finally we extend the Kaehler form of the Siegel metric as a closed current on the Deligne-Mumford compatification of M_g and we determine its cohomology class as a multiple of the first Chern class of the Hodge bundle.
